WARNER TO LEAD TEAMS OUT

5 August 2016

Reward for Club’s Disability Liaison Officer in EFL initiative

The teams will be led out of the tunnel by the Club’s Disability Liaison Officer, Warner Duff, when Blues open the campaign against Barnsley at Portman Road on Saturday.
 
Warner is Town’s nominee to walk the matchball out as part of the EFL’s Stories campaign, which sees someone who has gone that extra mile for their club acknowledged at each of the 72 EFL clubs over the next week.  

Warner was the Football League’s Fan of the Year in 2009 after being nominated by then Town boss Jim Magilton for the work he does with Town’s disabled supporters at home and away games, as well as looking after the opposition’s disabled fans at Portman Road.

He will also be the Club’s first Community Champion and we are looking for more over the rest of the season. 

If you know someone who deserves some recognition for doing something special - it maybe a youngster who gave their pocket money to charity or someone who has been helping with the sick, or an act of bravery - then email your nomination to jade.cole@itfc.co.uk. 

The Club, in association with BBC Suffolk’s Mark Murphy will select a Community Champion for each of Town’s weekend home games, starting with Norwich on August 21 and they will present the matchball to the referee on the pitch before kick-off. 

The Community Champion, who does not need to be a Town - or even a football fan - will receive two match tickets to the game.
