L for Learner
Premiership test
Is somewhat sterner
New boys, learner divers
Desparate formations
Green behind the back four
Raw recruits
Fledging canaries
Wearing mens suits
Championship next season
We’ll not be beginners
Looking forward already
To beating the binners*



*binners – Ipswich FC, known locally as ‘the binmen’

We’re a small club in a small city. There’s no disguising it. Even our streets are too narrow to have the same fire engines as the rest of the country. Proud to be different.
