Muhren and Thijssen return to Ipswich for a nostalgic night at Portman Road

Ipswich Town were delighted to welcome back Dutch Legends Arnold Muhren and Frans Thijssen at our recent 'An Evening With...' event on Friday 17th February.

Guests were treated to an interview with the pair, who were also joined by Tom van Hulsen, author of the book 'Game Changers', which charts their success as the first two Dutch professional players in England.

A lively and entertaining Q&A session followed, where guests had the chance to put their questions to the duo, and were treated to enjoyable anecdotes from their time at Ipswich Town.

Compere for the evening, Simon Milton, said: "This was another brilliant evening celebrating two Ipswich Town legends, sharing personal memories of their time in the team.  

"Not only were they the first Dutch professional players in England, but they were an integral part of the successful 1981 UEFA Cup-winning team.  It was a pleasure to have them join us for such an entertaining evening.

"In addition, the book Game Changers is an absolute must-have for any Ipswich Town fan."
