It’s 21 years since Jim Magilton signed for Ipswich Town on a permanent deal from Sheffield Wednesday - here’s a look at some of the best pictures of the man known as ‘Magic’ throughout his time at the Blues as a player, and then as the boss...
Magilton put pen to paper on a permanent deal with Town on March 22, 1999, moving to Ipswich from the Owls for a feee of almost £700,000.
It was to prove a steal for Town, with Magilton going on to lead the club ito the Premier League – having fired his only career hat-trick in that remarkable win over Bolton in the play-off semi-final second leg at Portman Road.
Of course, he also managed the Blues, and is still the last boss to lead Town to a win over the old enemy Norwich City, way back in 2009.
