Club receives complimentary email from Borough crediting the support and behavior of the 1,400 Town fans

Stevenage have praised the support and behavior of the Blue Army, following last night’s Capital One Cup fixture.

Town exited the competition at the first round stage after two second-half goals saw Stevenage defeat the Blues at the Lamex Stadium.

1,400 Town fans made the trip to North Hertfordshire to see Mick McCarthy’s side in action and although they returned to Suffolk disappointed at the result, they were commended by Stevenage’s Safety Officer, Steve Fanthorpe.

Here is the email we received from Steve earlier today, on behalf of Stevenage FC:

“The away section of our ground has 1390 seats and 1313 turned up to support Ipswich. Due to a late walk up and certain turnstile issues, around 50/60 fans missed the first five minutes, and to their credit, they did not complain.
“Could you please pass onto the club how well behaved your supporters were at last night's game, even though the tie went against them.

“At my post-match debrief with the stand supervisors, they both commented on how well behaved and friendly the Ipswich supporters all were. They are a credit to your club.”
“During the game they were very compliant and did not cause us any issues whatsoever. This all added to a great atmosphere on a traditional Cup night.
