AN Ipswich Town supporter has expressed her disgust at one of the women's toilet blocks at the club's Portman Road stadium.

Season ticket holder Colleen Foy, of Polstead, near Hadleigh, said she has sent the club a letter every week since the start of this season complaining about the state of the ladies' lavatories she uses in the Cobbold Stand.

AN Ipswich Town supporter has expressed her disgust at one of the women's toilet blocks at the club's Portman Road stadium.

Season ticket holder Colleen Foy, of Polstead, near Hadleigh, said she has sent the club a letter every week since the start of this season complaining about the state of the ladies' lavatories she uses in the Cobbold Stand.

"My husband, son and I are all season ticket holders and support the players absolutely. But this season I have become increasingly disappointed and now disgusted at the state of the ladies' toilets near the snack bar between blocks A and B.

"They are blocked before the match starts and you cannot flush them, so you can only imagine what they are like at half-time," she said.

Mrs Foy believes the blocked toilets are a health hazard because they are located directly next to a snack bar.

"It is now a matter for the Environmental Health Authority. The stench at half-time in an area where food is being prepared, served and eaten and where there are far too few toilet facilities for those needing them indicates that some action must be taken," she said.

Mrs Foy said the club had a responsibility to its fans to provide good, clean facilities – especially with the number of young children it has attending matches.

"ITFC should spare a few hundred pounds from the many thousands they are spending on their new stand to make football matches more pleasant for their long term supporters," she said.

She expressed her disappointment that the club has not taken the time to reply to her letters of complaint.

A spokesman for Ipswich Town said the club was investigating the matter but refused to comment further.
