Today we launch the first in a series of features looking back at Ipswich’s past - its famous faces, prestigious landmarks and the defining moments that helped shape the town.
And what better place to start than at the start of the alphabet - A, for Alf Ramsey.
Sir Alf Ramsey is one of the most recognisable names within football managing history.
The East Anglian hero led England to victory by managing the squad in the 1966 World Cup and managed Ipswich Town Football Club between 1955-1963.
His famous face appeared many times throughout Suffolk’s history, and here we share some of our photos of the footballing great.
