Me and My Club
with Molly Stanmore
Town fan Molly Stanmore discusses her first Town game, favourite Town player and more.
How did you become a Town fan?
I became a town fan when I was about 8 years old. My family have followed town and been season ticket holders for over 40 years now- so my blood is blue.
First Town game. Year/team/score/ground?
My first town game was at home to Norwich on the 15th September 2002, the game finished 1-1 with Pablo scoring the equaliser.
Favourite Town player of all time and why?
My favourite ever town player was Pablo Counago- think that goal at my first game helped! Was gutted to see him leave!
Worst moment as a Town Fan?
My worst moment as a Town fan is watching us get so close to promotion in 2004 and 2015.
Favourite Town goal ever and why?
My favourite ever town goal has to be Cole Skuse’s against Cardiff! Could not believe it!!
Best Ipswich Town captain of all time and why?
Best Ipswich captain for me is close between Matt Holland and Luke Chambers but think Chambo gets it!
Love his passion!
Love his passion!
Favourite piece of Town memorabilia is?
My favourite piece of town memorabilia is my club scarf. Bought it at my first ever town game and its travelled with me to many games since.
Greatest Town game you have watched & why?
Greatest Town game I have ever watched was last season’s away game at Charlton, purely for that 95th min winner from Noel Hunt- was such a great atmosphere and what a way to end the game!
Who is your favourite Town manager and why?
My favourite town manager since I’ve been a town fan has to be McCarthy. Just love him and TC!
Most memorable Town moment as a fan of Ipswich and why?
The most memorable Town moment for me is between the home game against Coventry in 2010, when Pablo made it 3-2 in the 90th minute and beating Arsenal 1-0 at home in the 2011 cup.
