EXCLUSIVE

HOLLY Bellingham has revealed her thoughts on being a possible future candidate to replace David Sheepshanks as Ipswich Town chairman.

The joint leading shareholder in the Blues, who also runs a multi-million pound insurance company, has spoken for the first time about being on the Portman Road board and her vision for the future.

In an exclusive in-depth interview with the EADT, she talks finances, football and family and about women in the game.

Bellingham is convinced that Ipswich can still win promotion to the Premiership this decade but admits that with the £1.7bn flowing into the Premier League clubs it will get harder.

She said: “I can see a European super League being formed in the not too distant future for the big clubs.

“For Ipswich the Premiership is a real possibility. It won't be easy but it is feasible.”

The EADT also looks at why Marketform is so successful and reveals who is the 'Suffolk Screamer'.
