The Super Blue was invited to the school in Main Road, Kesgrave yesterday to take part in a celebration tea party for Year 7 pupils.

The Town captain, who has supported a number of initiatives at the school in the last year, went along to congratulate the youngsters on their “outstanding attitude and effort towards their work”.

Organised by head of year seven Faye Hubbard, more than 30 students took part and got the chance to meet the star.

To mark the occasion and to represent the relationship between ITFC and Kesgrave High School, Carlos and the students signed a large canvas which displayed both the Ipswich Town and Kesgrave High School crests.

The afternoon rounded off with every student getting the Town player’s autograph as well as having a few photographs with their hero.

Carlos said: “This group have worked hard and obviously had a great attitude towards learning. All they need to do is keep doing what they are doing, learn as much as they can and I am sure they will go far. Keep up the good work!”
