Sheepshanks given honourary Town role
DAVID Sheepshanks has been made an honorary vice-president at Ipswich Town.
The former chairman, who first became a member of the board almost 25 years ago, accepted the invitation from Town chief executive Simon Clegg.
Clegg said: “I think it’s fitting that David’s outstanding commitment to this club over many years should be recognised in this way.
“As supporters of the club will know, David was a member of the board from 1987 and became chairman in 1995, a position he held for many years.
“He also led the search to find an owner for the football club and played a leading role in securing Marcus Evans’ investment into Ipswich Town.
