Harry Stewart, a year ten student at Orwell High in Felixstowe, has received the go-ahead to put his questions on camera to the club's new chief executive Simon Clegg.

The 15-year-old will be the youngest person to interview Mr Clegg since his arrival at Portman Road and he can't wait to experience what seasoned journalists do on a daily basis.

Harry said: “Simon Clegg sounds like a very interesting man and I can't wait to put my questions to him.
