Ipswich Town v Barnsley

Twenty three intrepid members of our school community ventured to the bright lights of Ipswich in anticipation of a footballing feast. Well, that might be overdoing it a tad, but (at times) the football was quite good.
Ipswich took an early lead when the visiting goalkeeper completely lost his bearings, rushed out of his area to the touchline and let the enigmatic Pablo Counago poke the ball round him, curl a long range shot onto the post only to see it slammed home by Daryl Murphy.

However, the Earl Soham section had seen this happen before during the Middlesborough match, so whilst almost ecstatic, past memories lingered at the back of people's minds.

This time, although unable to add to their lead, Ipswich held firm (ish) to keep out the visitors and record another three points. A relatively happy 20, 588 fans left the stadium carefully taking note of all the lucky clothing they'd need to wear next time!

It was a pleasure to organise, yet again.
