Champions back at Portman Road as Town and England legend joins Walk of Fame

Two of the Town players from the Championship winning side of 1961/62 were at Portman Road on Saturday to see the achievements of Sir Alf Ramsey honoured.

The former Blues boss has been inducted into the National Football Museum’s ‘Walk of Fame’ for guiding England to World Cup glory in 1966. 

He joins in the ‘Walk of Fame’ 11 players from that World Cup winning team as well as the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, George Best and Diego Maradona, along with Pele, who was the first to receive the ‘Football Walk of Fame Legend Award’. 

To mark the occasion, Town unveiled a replica ‘Walk of Fame’ plaque, which has been donated by The National Football Museum and was designed by well respected sports artist Paul Trevillion, before the Birmingham game at the weekend.

Skipper Andy Nelson and prolific striker Ray Crawford attended the unveiling, with the commemorative plaque positioned in the stand carrying Sir Alf’s name.
