Extra Time banter
WORD reaches me that SGR are neck and neck with Radio Suffolk in the battle for the commentary rights for Ipswich Town's home games next season.
The independent station are looking to end the BBC's stranglehold on commentary and have backing from within the club who are unhappy with what they consider as Radio Suffolk's sometimes critical, others may say unbiased, approach.
Certainly if what I'm told is correct, the club should not be concerned about that if SGR win the bidding war as there are murmurings that Town employees Terry Baxter and Simon Milton are to be lined up as their commentary duo.
No bias there then.

NOT sure about you but if I was splashing out £9m on a new house I would expect to be able to move right in.
But Marcus Evans' family will have to wait a while as the reclusive Ipswich Town owner needs to lay out a hefty sum to do the place up first.
I'm sure those local contractors can't wait to get to work on the Bermuda-based businessman's pile.
It will be interesting to see if he nips into Tregony's nearest Championship club Plymouth Argyle, to watch the Blues play.
JOHN Wark's encyclopaedic knowledge of Ipswich Town helped him win £175 for a breast cancer charity.
The Blues legend beat Steve Sedgley in a tie-break in a quiz during the opening of a Betterbet shop in Ipswich's town centre yesterday to secure a free £50 charity bet.
He plumped for King of Dixie at York which came in at 9/4.
Sedgley had every right to feel aggrieved after scoring a perfect five but wasn't as quick as Warky in the face off, who knew that Paul Mariner signed for Ipswich from Plymouth.
