TEAMITFC head for Amsterdam with former Blues leading the way in charity cycle ride

Former Town players Terry Butcher, Alan Lee, Titus Bramble and Simon Milton led the 40 cyclists out of Portman Road this morning as TEAMITFC embarked on the Ipswich to Amsterdam cycle ride 2016. 

The group are raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK and the Friends of Ipswich Town charities. 

They will be cycling around 250 miles, returning to Portman Road around 12 noon on Monday, June 6.

To mark the 35th anniversary of Town’s UEFA Cup final win over AZ Alkmaar, TEAMITFC will visit the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam where Blues lifted the trophy before heading to Alkmaar’s training ground for a friendly with fans from the Dutch club 

“We have invited Arnold Muhren and Frans Thijssen to join us to help celebrate the win and meet with AZ Alkmaar supporters and staff on Sunday,” Milts told the Club website. 

“It is Titus’ first cycling event but he will be playing at centre-half in the game as his young legs will be needed following the 160 miles we would have covered before the game!”
