Ipswich Town fans had a day to remember back in 1999 when the Ipswich Star held a special event at Boots to let people get their photos taken with two top players.

Fans turned out in their droves with queues filling the store and out the entrance and down through the hallways at Sailmakers - then known as Tower Ramparts - as fans waited patiently.

For just £2 the supporters got the chance to meet their heroes and it was all for a good cause - as all the proceeds made from the event went directly to charity.
