New Town Book Recalls Fans' Favourite Games
Monday, 9th Oct 2017 11:35
A new compilation of writing about Town, My Favourite Game, was published by Electric Blue on 29 September.
Thirteen very different Blues supporters write about their favourite games. From the sublime, when Ipswich beat Bolton in the 2000 play-off semi-finals, to a near riot at Millwall in 1978 and classic games against Norwich and Sheffield United.
The contributors to the book are first and foremost Ipswich Town fans writing as fans, but as well as those making their debut in print, there are essays by established writers whose names will be familiar to Blues supporters.
The book’s editor, Susan Gardiner, writes about beating Inter Milan at Portman Road, Seán Salter on the 1996 Bryan Gunn derby, Stuart Hellingsworth about the great comeback against Neil Warnock's Sheffield United in 2003, Sarah Rogers on a classic 4-0 defeat of Everton under Bobby Robson in 1980 and Alasdair Ross recalls a troubled FA Cup fixture at Chelmsford in 1973.
The book is available from TWTD via Amazon here. All proceeds from the sales of the book will be donated to EACH, a charity which ITFC is also supporting this season.
