Ipswich Witches promoter Chris Louis has spoken out after the Witches 2018 season came to a premature end – with just 13 home meetings all told taking place at Foxhall Heath this year.

Louis addresses that thread-bare fixture list, addresses what has held the Witches back from winning any silverware since 2011, and talks about what he would like to see happen to the sport in this country.

Let me give you a new definition of desperation. It’s an Ipswich Town fan wanting Norwich City to score a last-minute winner to save his beloved Tractor Boys from falling even further behind in the Championship relegation battle, writes North Stander Terry Hunt.

Ipswich Town are now eight points adrift of safety at the foot of the Championship table following yesterday’s 2-0 defeat at Stoke City. STUART WATSON gives his thoughts.

Ipswich Town lost 2-0 at Stoke City in a Championship clash yesterday afternoon. STUART WATSON gives his thoughts.

Trevoh Chalobah insists the confidence boost generated by manager Paul Lambert’s arrival still remains, despite Ipswich Town suffering a fourth successive defeat at Stoke yesterday.
