Impressive Easter Monday victory and performance against Newcastle sees Mick McCarthy's side presented with award by the LMA

The League Managers Association’s five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, have determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Ipswich Town for their impressive 3-1 victory against promotion contenders Newcastle United on Monday 17th April 2017.

The Blues swept aside Rafa Benitez's side at Portman Road, with goals from Freddie Sears, David McGoldrick and Emyr Huws sealing the points.

The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

Ipswich Town Manager Mick McCarthy will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and a LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
