SKIPPER UP FOR THE CUP

4 January 2018

Chambo looking to end disappointing cup record and make progress in a 'great competition'

Luke Chambers is looking for Town to end a barren run in the FA Cup and make in-roads into the competition this season.

Blues take on Sheffield United at Portman Road on Saturday looking to reach the fourth round for the first time since 2010.

“It’s a great competition, the FA Cup,” the Town skipper told the Club website.

“We have not had the best of times in the cup since I’ve been here so it would be nice to get a run going this year.

“We want to go as far as we can. I don’t think the cup can ever be a distraction from the league either.  I’m not sure what the gaffer will do in terms of his team. He might make a few changes, we will see but I love the cup.

“I played against Man United when I was at Northampton and we beat Man City away with Forest. We beat them 3-0. That was a mad, mad day.

“We will be looking to progress and get into the next round and see what that brings us.”

Season ticket holders are reminded that Season Ticket cards WILL NOT be activated for the game, with the exception of corporate guests.  

Paper tickets are issued at the time of purchase and must be used for accessing the stadium.  

The Club no longer runs an automated Cup Scheme so supporters need to purchase their seat either online at www.itfcdirect.com or at Planet Blue.

Tickets will also be available on the gate and are priced at £10 for adults; £5 for seniors 65+ and U23s and £2 for U19s. 

The Club will not be opening the upper tiers of the Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Alf Ramsey stands (including disabled areas) and blocks O, P, Q and R of the Co-op stand will also be closed for the match.
