IPSWICH Town heroes teed off for a very special round of golf today – despite the rain!
Pat Godbold, recently retired secretary to a long list of Blues managers, said the weather couldn't spoil the occasion. "Some of the players haven't seen each other for 30 years, so they have been busy reminiscing."
Four members of the Championship winning side in 1962, Jimmy Leadbetter, Doug Moran, John Compton and Aled Owen, were taking part in the Ipswich Town ex-players' golf day at Waldringfield Heath.
They played for the Roy Stephenson Memorial Trophy in memory of their former team-mate, who died two years ago. Roy was another member of the Championship-winning side.

Pat organised the event together with Rex Osman, father of former Town player Russell, and Evening Star golf writer Neal Manning.
