Premiership test
Is somewhat sterner
Novices
New boys, learner divers
Desparate formations
Five-one-fivers
Green behind the back four

Notes

*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.
