IPSWICH fans were today basking in the Luxembourg sunshine ahead of tonight's UEFA Cup clash with Avenir Beggen.

With a 7pm kick off, there was plenty of time for sight-seeing, drinking - and practising the Tractor Boys chant.

IPSWICH fans were today basking in the Luxembourg sunshine ahead of tonight's UEFA Cup clash with Avenir Beggen.

With a 7pm kick off, there was plenty of time for sight-seeing, drinking - and practising the Tractor Boys chant.

The team arrived at Luxembourg's Findel airport yesterday, although some fans left it until this morning to touch down in the Grand Duchy in the Low Countries.

Others had made the journey by coach from Portman Road or made their own way across to mainland Europe.

With time to kill, Town fans were enjoying getting to grips with a new currency - the euro.

This was the Tractor Boys' first competitive European game since the notes came into circulation earlier this year.

Tonight's match, at Luxembourg's national stadium, will provide a good test for Town's European credentials and they will be eager to avoid slipping up - as Manchester United did last night.
