SUFFOLK County Football Association has joined forces with Ipswich Town Football Club for a comprehensive consultancy scheme.

The SCFA will consult with Ipswich Town as part of plans to re-structure The Suffolk Football Plan, which evolved from the FA National Game Strategy (2008-2012).

The partnership was launched at Ipswich Town's Galleria restaurant on Portman Road, and included Ipswich Town Chairman David Sheepshanks as a guest speaker.

This is hoped to be achieved through staff training, an improvement of facilities and marketing campaigns.
