IPSWICH Town boss Jim Magilton is thanking the support of the Blue Army by offering one member a place in the Town first-team squad next season.
The club in association with the East Anglian Daily Times and E.ON are again asking supporters to get right behind the team against Hull on Sunday by holding blue cards aloft as the players come out of the tunnel before kick-off, making it a blue-tiful day at Portman Road.
It proved a success against Norwich with Town going on to win 2-1, and Magilton is keen to see a repeat performance - but this time there is a fantastic reward for one Blue Army member.

Magilton said: “Our fans have been magnificent this year and we all noticed the blue cards at the Norwich game and the fantastic atmosphere the supporters created. The noise could be heard in our dressing-room and really added to the occasion. We need to turn the volume up again on Sunday. It's a football cliché but it's right, supporters really can be the 12th man.”
The blue cards will be given out on all turnstiles at Sunday's match, which kicks-off at 2pm.
