Town's goalkeeping coach bids an emotional farewell after 50 years in the game

Malcolm Webster admitted it was emotional moment after ending 50 years in the game.

Town’s goalkeeping coach has retired from the game following the 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough and was joined by his grandchildren on the pitch as he took part in Blues’ lap of appreciation at the final whistle.

“It is hitting me now and it is emotional,” Mally told iFollow Ipswich.

“I am a quiet guy. I just get on with my job but I feel it now. It only really hit me on the pitch at the end. Tony Pulis and the Middlesbrough lads came up and wished me the best. Their kitman came over as well and said as it was my last game and gave me a shirt. Things like that mean a lot.

“It was a great to go out on a good game for the Club as well.

“I have had a great time over the 50 years and I’m happy with what I have achieved. I’m happy with all the ‘keepers I have worked with and the people I have worked with at the Club here. That is what has made it special.”
