Players to do lap of appreciation of supporters after Swansea game
Paul Lambert says an award he received from the Town supporters means as much as any winners’ medal he has won in his career as player and manager.
The Town boss, along with the players, attended the Supporters’ Club awards night last weekend and was humbled by a presentation from the fans.
“I was presented with a plaque and on it was inscribed ‘thanks for putting a smile back on the terraces’,” Paul told iFollow Ipswich.
“You don’t know how much that meant to me. I’ve been fortunate enough to have won medals, trophies - the biggest trophy in Europe as a player in the Champions League - but that presentation from the supporters is right up there in terms of what it meant.
“I keep saying it’s not a normal situation this. I can’t really put my finger on why it is what it is, but there seems to be a bond there now between the supporters and the Football Club again. Just imagine what this place will be like if we were winning games every week!”
Paul, the staff and the players will show their thanks for the supporters with the traditional lap of appreciation walk around the pitch after Monday’s game against Swansea, with tickets for the match at just £1 for U19s.
