Sir Bobby Robson Day will honour the memory of the former England manager, who died in 2009, when Rafa Benitez’s side visit Portman Road on April 17 with the Suffolk club planning a host of special events.

Sir Bobby’s family will be guests of the Blues on the day while money collected from fundraising activities on the day will be donated to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

We are also planning our own special tribute to Ipswich’s longest-serving manager – and we’d like you to be involved.

We want Ipswich fans to give us their thoughts and memories of Sir Bobby at Town.

Email us here with a sentence or two about him, or let us know whether you’d be up for speaking on camera for no more than 30 seconds about the impact he’s had on you or your time as an ITFC fan.
