IPSWICH TOWN: Blues chief executive Simon Clegg has been reserved his own seat on official Supporters' Club coaches to away games.

He explained: “I travelled with fans to the win at Cardiff City at the end of last season, and I was with them again on Tuesday for the win at Queens Park Rangers.

“I appear to be a lucky charm for our terrific supporters who turn up at every away game in large numbers.

“And they have asked if I can travel with them every game!”

Clegg sees the importance of maintaining a family feel between club and fans, and this has been reflected in Ipswich being awarded the Football League family excellence award for the third successive year.

The award recognises experience provided for young fans and families on match day with Ipswich one of only 17 clubs in the league who have achieved this prestigious award every year since it was launched in 2007.

The recognition is based on an independent assessment of the family experience at all 72 Football League clubs during the 2009/10 season using 'mystery shopper' families.
