Ipswich Town got their new season up-and-running with a 1-0 win against Birmingham City at Portman Road yesterday and you’ve been sharing your photos of the day using the #myitfcpic hashtag on Twitter.

The Blues have three points on the Championship board thanks to Joe Garner’s 50th minute debut winner. His fine movement and neat finish came at the end of decent move involving the impressive Grant Ward and Jonas Knudsen.

Manager Mick McCarthy said: “The club needed today’s result and I needed it personally. I’ve had great support and been humbled by the reception at the Open Day and walking out onto the pitch today, but I’m not under any illusions that had we lost I would have been walking off to a cacophony of boos and a fair bit of abuse. That probably would have been deserved on the back end of last season, but last season has gone.

“I said on Friday ‘please come and support the team and get behind them’. We wanted a good result, to play well and to entertain the crowd. I think we’ve done that today.”
