The Legends are back!

For the third consecutive year, West Suffolk Hospital Charity is teaming up with Ipswich Town to give football fans the chance to play against – or alongside – some of the Super Blues’ most famous names from the past.

John Wark, Matt Holland and Kieron Dyer have lined up in past years to support the hospital’s Forget-Me-Not Dementia Campaign and, co-beneficiary, Ipswich Town Academy.

The trio of big names, and the likes of Russell Osman, Titus Bramble, Simon Milton and James Scowcroft, are all set to feature in the charity game on Sunday 17 April at Bury Town’s Ram Meadow.

The chance to gain a place in this fantastic football match begins at 9am on Monday 29th February with fans having all this week to place a silent bid for a spot in either the Forget-Me-Not FC or the ITFC Legends team.

Bidding starts at a minimum £100 for a place in the Forget-Me-Not FC side and £200 for the ITFC Legends with anyone interested invited to make their bid via an entry form on the charity website –

The deadline for bids is 5pm on Friday 4th March with winning bidders notified on Monday 7th March.

There are 17 spots in the Forget-Me-Not side up for grabs, including two goalkeeping places, and four places in the Legends squad.
