Best Ipswich Captain for me was Matt Holland! True blue, great leader and never missed a game.
Favourite piece of Town memorabilia is?
Memorabilia includes a shirt signed by David Sheepshanks when he visited Sandhurst a couple of years ago. It was great to chat to him about some great Ipswich history.

Favourite manager was George Burley, great determination to win! Super Mick is close up there and I am confident he will lead the blue army to the premier league this season
Most memorable Town moment as a fan of Ipswich and why?
Best memory has to be promotion, great atmosphere, great Ipswich support and real passion in the team and fans.
