On this day in Town history: The snow game with Leicester and Megson’s own goal
In our daily feature, we take a look at what happened on this day in Ipswich Town’s history. Today features the famous Gary Megson own goal in a derby day win, and the day that heavy snow couldn’t stop the the Blues in a big win over Leicester...
We begin today 25 years ago, when Gary Megson scored a 90th minute own goal as the Blues beat ten-man Norwich City 2-1 at Portman Road.
In 2010, Roy Keane’s Ipswich beat Leicester City 3-0 live on Sky TV at Portman Road to end a run of six straight losses, but only after the game was nearly abandoned because of heavy snow.
And finally on this day in 1999, Neil Midgley scored on his Blues’ debut as Town beat West Brom 3-1 at Portman Road, while Romeo Zondervan was among the scorers as Town beat Shrewsbury 2-0 at Portman Road in 1987.
