THREE more jobs have been lost at Portman Road as cuts continue to bite backroom staff.
One member of the ground staff has been made redundant, while another who left voluntarily will not be replaced.
A third member of staff whose contract is not being renewed after reaching retirement age will also go and not be replaced.
The cuts will save around £50,000 a year, around the same amount Iván Campo has been paid during the period he has not been involved in the Blues squad.
Campo has not made the 16 for six games since the 2-2 draw at Swansea.

Manager Jim Magilton has said he will allow the Spaniard to go out on loan if a club is willing to take him.
The cuts continue to be implemented by owner Marcus Evans after he conducted a root and branch investigation of the way the club is run.
David Sheepshanks no longer has a salary and is now the club's non-executive chairman, while finance director Anna Hughes left in the summer.
Administration staff have already been cut back with around a dozen people understood to have left the club without being replaced over the past six months and more are expected to follow.
While players are being scouted in South America the club is considering downsizing the famed youth system with a number of coaches expected to lose their jobs.
Other measures thought to be under consideration include looking at the possibility of selling land they own at Playford Road and Bent Lane and to ask the players to pay for their lunches at the club's training ground.
Although an Ipswich Town spokesman has confirmed the latest three job losses he declined to comment further.
