Join Mike Bacon as he chats to former Ipswich Town star, Kevin Horlock, in this special Kings of Anglia podcast.

Kevin looks back at his career, including at Town, when he almost helped the Blues back into the Premier League.

He remembers his Swindon, Manchester City and West Ham times, as well as life as an international player with Northern Ireland. And his future plans with a new role as a non-league manager at Needham Market.

He reveals the  dark moments after retirement and how a freak injury while copying a fellow Ipswich team-mate's audacious celebration aided that retirement from the pro game.... as well as how a Horlock 'strop' at Carrow Road ended in a £300 taxi bill home.

From stories and thoughts on Joe Royle to Kieran McKenna, Jim Magilton to Darren Currie.... Kuqi, Bent, Tommy Miller et al, this is the story of a professional footballer's love of the game, throughout his many highs and just as tough lows.
