Family and former players attend to 'open' hospitality lounge at Portman Road

Ipswich Town officially unveiled Beattie's hospitality lounge at Portman Road earlier today.

Friends and family of Kevin Beattie - who passed away last September - attended, along with a selection of the Club legend's former teammates.

George Burley, Eric Gates, Roger Osborne, John Peddelty and John Wark witnessed the opening, while current Blues midfielder Cole Skuse and General Manager of Football Operations Lee O'Neill also attended.

Formerly known as 'Legends', the hospitality lounge, which hosts up to 350 fans on matchdays, now features photographs, portraits and quotes all honouring Kevin and what he achieved for Town and England.

Club partner Greene King played a big part in the refurbishment of Beattie's along with Carling, which will now be the lager served around the stadium.

The Beat Goes On will also be hosting a collection outside Portman Road and in the FanZone before Blues' clash with Sunderland this weekend. All money raised from the collection will be put towards the statue of Kevin.

The Club would like to thank Kevin's family and everyone involved with the re-naming of the hospitality lounge and launch of Beattie's.
