With the destination of the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division title decided, the battle for the runners-up position goes into the last week.

If Newmarket Town fail to collect three points at home to Kirkley & Pakefield tomorrow and the Seasiders win at Ely, then Kevin O’Donnell’s men will finish second.

Any other combination would see the battle go into the final game when the two sides meet at The Goldstar Ground on April 29.

Both sides should be favourites to collect maximum points although The Seasiders face a tricky test at the Unwin ground with Ely having a decent home record.

The Jockeys host a Kirkley & Pakefield side who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season and have lost five of their last six games.

The Seasiders start the day in second place with Newmarket a point behind but with an inferior goal difference.

Ipswich Town fans want to see young defender Josh Emmanuel given his chance in the first team next season.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says Josh Emmanuel may be sent out on loan again next season.

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers hopes striker David McGoldrick has not played his last game for the club.

Season ticket prices, whether we’ll hear from owner Marcus Evans and manager Mick McCarthy’s future are the three big questions as Ipswich Town head into a two-week international break.

Did you hear about the Mick McCarthy press conference? He walked into the room, sat down, and apologised profusely to the loyal fans of Ipswich Town, writes Northstander Terry Hunt.

Defender Jordan Spence has insisted he and his team-mates will never stop giving their all for manager Mick McCarthy.

In his latest Ipswich Town column, Karl Fuller pens an open letter to Blues owner Marcus Evans...

Ipswich Town defender Cameron Carter-Vickers has been called up to the United States squad for their friendly with Paraguay during the international break.

A fortnight for the fog to clear – but unfortunately it doesn’t look like Ipswich Town fans are going to get the full clarity they need.

Jordan Spence was disappointed he and the rest of the Ipswich Town defence were unable to deal with the threat of towering striker Milan Djuric as they slipped to defeat at Ashton Gate.
