1978 will forever be a year etched in Ipswich Town history, with the Blues’ 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup final being one of the club’s greatest ever achievements.
And to mark the occasion, Town supporters packed into the Cornhill in 1998 as the legends reunited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the historic win.
Sir Bobby Robson, Paul Mariner, Kevin Beattie and the goalscorer Roger Osborne were all in attendance for the day, as they showed off the FA Cup whilst also addressing the fans.
They also took a trip back to Portman Road and lucky fans got the chance to get autographs and meet their heroes up close.
The scene at the Cornhill almost recreated that which greeted the Town players when they initially won the FA Cup.
It surely left the players and fans alike feeling nostalgic and proud of that famous day.
