IPSWICH Town Football Club last night confirmed that a group of first team players had been disciplined following an unauthorised trip to Amsterdam.
It is understood five players have been warned about their future conduct following the two-day jaunt.
A club spokesman last night refused to confirm or deny the identity of those at the centre of the incident.
But they are believed to be first team regulars Alan Lee and Gary Roberts, along with Academy graduates Darryl Knights, Scott Barron and Chris Casement.

Blues boss Jim Magilton said: “This is an internal disciplinary matter and the appropriate steps have now been taken to ensure that this does not happen again. Those involved are very aware that I expect better from them in future.”
It is believed the players travelled to the Dutch capital after being given two days off ahead of Saturday's FA Cup third round tie against Chester City. The game against the League Two side ended in a disappointing goalless draw and the two sides will meet again at Portman Road next Tuesday for the replay.
