Archant

Seven teams from across the Ipswich and South Suffolk School Games area competed in a Sportshall Athletics event at Westbourne College.

Each team had a minimum of nine boys and nine girls and a maximum of 15 boys and 15 girls so the event proved to be a lively and noisy spectacle.

The event was made up of a mixture of field events including standing long jump, standing triple jump, chest push, javelin and speed bounce and then a series of track events, including an obstacle relay, one, two and six lap races and a team relay.

Both events were run for boys and girls, and when the girls were competing in field events, the boys took to the track.

Standings:- 1st Britannia (260 points), 2nd - Gorseland (250 points)

Both teams will go forward to represent Ipswich and South Suffolk at the Level 2 [county] school games finals on February 5 at Mid Suffolk Leisure centre

3rd Bramford and Somersham (204 points), 4th - Sidegate (168 points), 5th - Broke Hall (146 points), 6th - Halifax (128 points), 7th Castle Hill (114 points)

Both Sidegate and Castle Hill had year 5 pupils competing and Bramford, Sidegate and Castle Hill were all taking part in the event for the first time

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.
