BOOTS worn by Ipswich Town legend Kevin Beattie will go under the hammer tomorrow.

The footwear is part of a collection of rare Blues memorabilia which will be auctioned off, including Beattie's first P60 form, match-day programmes and autographs.

The boots are expected to reach £60 to £80 at the sale at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Ipswich.

A reprinted programme signed by eight players and Sir Bobby Robson, plus a large framed poster which was one of only 13 handed out by Robson to the 1978 players, is expected to cost between £200 and £225.

The auction is being run by Lockdales from 12.30pm and viewing starts at 10am.
