Ipswich Town Football Club have appointed Suffolk Police Superintendent Mick Warden as their new head of safety and security. He will take up the post on January 1.

Warden, 49, has been with Suffolk Constabulary since 1974, when he joined as a PC. Since that time he has seen his career develop within the force, with policing football at Portman Road playing a key role over the last 30 years. Most recently, he acted in a Police Command role for local derbies with Norwich, the England international against Croatia in August, 2003 and the home leg of the First Division play-off semi-final against West Ham at the end of last season.
