Town history timeline gives Cobbold Stand a new look
The Cobbold Stand has been given a facelift with a timeline of Ipswich Town history now in place.
The beginnings of the Football Club through to the League Championship winners of 1962; the golden days under Sir Bobby Robson; promotion to the Premier League in 1992; the Wembley wonders of 2000 and the defence of that proud unbeaten home record in Europe are all featured as well as some of the record breakers in blue.
The timeline is depicted running across the exterior windows of the stand, either side of the Hall of Fame entrance and was designed by Town fan, Marcus Parrott, with the Hudson Group supplying the print and fitting.
“The Club wanted something that would catch the eye but that also told the story of Ipswich Town,” Marcus told the Club website.
“Obviously being a fan of the Club myself, it was a job that immediately appealed but design-wise it was a challenge because we had to work around the metal strips that hold in the panels of glass. Hopefully the end result will be well received by the supporters.”
