Charter Night Celebration with ITFC

Our 94th Charter Night Celebration was held over Zoom on Thursday 29 April. As speakers, we had three Ipswich Town players of the 1970s and 80s: Brian Hamilton, Russell Osman and Terry Butcher. It was a great evening.


A great night with ITFC

We were delighted to invite Brian Hamilton, Russell Osman and Terry Butcher to relive those great days at Portman Road in the seventies and eighties when the Town were a real power in the football world. As you can imagine they had some great stories to tell about the Robson years but they also had interesting personal experiences: Brian playing along Georgie Best; Russell appearing in the film ‘Escape to Victory’ with Michael Caine, Pele, and Bobby Moore; and Terry Butcher’s experience with Paul Gascoigne and also the international game in 1989 where he received a bloodied face, the photo of which appeared on every national and international sporting page. Then we had a question-and-answer session between the trio and the Rotary Club of Felixstowe and their friends. It was a very interesting evening.

We are proposing that all the proceeds from the event go to the Ipswich Town former players charity. You have to remember in those days there wasn’t the money in the business that there is now and unfortunately several players have fallen upon difficult times.
