Mick pleased to see so many fans through the doors yesterday, confirming his belief that Town is a 'family' Club

More than 2000 people attended the Club’s Open Day at Portman Road on Tuesday, an event which has now become a regular in the Town calendar.

As well as watching Mick McCarthy and his staff put the players through their paces in a training session on the pitch, fans were also able to watch the photocall for the first time in possibly the Club’s history.

The players and staff then spent over an hour signing autographs for the supporters, while on the Fieldturf, youngsters – and some not so young – were enjoying a variety of sidestalls and exhibitions.

“It was a great turn-out but that doesn’t surprise me. It reiterates what I have always felt about Ipswich Town, that it’s a great family club,” Town boss Mick McCarthy told the Club website.

“We’re lucky to enjoy fantastic support and we want to build on that. We’ve not got too many other clubs in our proximity and we want people who live in the area, who live in the region to come and support their local team.”
