Jay Tabb and Bartosz Bialkowski were delighted to see so many Town fans in attendance at today’s open day, which reached a record number of visitors.
More than 8,000 people passed through the doors at Portman Road as the Club hosted the annual open day, with supporters able to watch an open training session, have pictures and autographs with Mick McCarthy and the players and enjoy a number of family orientated activities out on the field turf.
“It was a really good turnout, with even more people here than last year I believe,” Jay Tabb told the official Club website.
“It’s always good to see and it shows what Ipswich Town is all about- a real family, community Club.
“It’s nice for the kids to come and watch us train and get some autographs during the school holidays and it’s really good to see everyone.”
Stopper Bartosz Bialkowski was put through his paces alongside Dean Gerken and Michael Crowe by ‘keeper coach Malcolm Webster, before signing autographs for plenty of young Blues.
You just look around and you see an amazing turnout from fans, I mean last year was good but this is even better,” added Bart.
“It’s a great opportunity for fans to come out and see us in action and we really appreciate the support.
“As a father myself, I know how much the kids enjoy days like this and I’m sure all the young fans enjoyed watching us train and having photos taken.”
