Ipswich Athletic manager Jimmy Marjoram is one of the scores of local football personnel who have been on the receiving end.

“It's happened to me numerous times,” said Jimmy. “The phone rings and someone blows you a raspberry then rings off.

“Or my Face Book page on the internet comes up with a huge RRRRAAAAASSSSSSSPPPPP on it. Sometimes it is done in the middle of the night.

“It's been a big talking point within the SIL for a while now and loads of people are trying to find out.

“It can become a bit irksome after a while and perhaps a tad over the top but it's all good fun.”

The Raspberry acknowledges that he is a wanted man, but he plans to remain evasive and to continue to play his game.

“I know lots of people are desperate to know my identity,” the Raspberry said.

“A number of names are being thrown around as to my identity but I plan to keep them all guessing.”

Previous suspects have included local club officials and players Marjoram, Alan Ditcham, Glen Bradlaugh, Jamie and Karl Sandilands, Christian Appleford, Peter Soloman, Sean Benneworth, Mark Howard and the current favourite Shaun Watson although referee Irvin Flaherty has been mentioned.

The Raspberry gave me a few clues to their identity revealing: “I live in Suffolk, I can be seen at Portman Road, I've been to Uzbekistan as a teenager, I am a de ja vu, my hands hurt at work, I support a team from distant lands, I like the Village People's songs - especially one of them, a family member is in the local sporting public eye, I like Mickey Mouse.”

Jimmy has his own ideas of who the culprit is and he pinpoints the Sandilands brothers. “Probably Karl,” said Jimmy. “But Achilles manager Alan Middle cannot be discounted.

“It appeared to begin at Crane Sports with Shaun Watson, Christian Appleford and Alan Ditcham involved in there somewhere.”

Have you any information on the identity of the Phantom Raspberry Blower of the SIL? Or have you been 'got'? If so let me know and we'll try to get to the bottom of this.
