IPSWICH Witches will be sponsored by Sackers Recycling not just next season – but for the next three years.

That was the happy New Year message Ipswich promoter Chris Louis was able to pass on to the Foxhall fans today, as Sackers and the Witches tied up a new deal.

“This is just great news for the club and our fans,” Louis said.

“Sackers have supported our move into the Premier League. But they share my view that the club needs to be back where it belongs – in the Elite League.
