Australasian Blues in Derby Action
Friday, 6th Sep 2019 15:32
The Australasian Branch of the Supporters Club will be hoping to emulate the success of ITFC Women when they take on their Norwich City counterparts in the Derby Down Under in Brisbane tomorrow.
The Blues have already recorded one derby win this week with the Tractor Girls running out 4-1 victors on Wednesday evening.
The Derby Down Under’s first five stagings all took place in Sydney with Town winning the first four before deadly rivals Canaries Down Under claimed their first victory last September.
This season’s match takes place at 150 Fursden Road, Carina, Brisbane on Saturday and kicks-off at 2pm.
“Please come along and support as we attempt to regain the trophy,” chairman Ed Parker told TWTD.
Ed will be speaking to BBC Radio Suffolk’s Life’s a Pitch after the game, hopefully during post-match celebrations.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom

2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
