THE son of an Ipswich Town legend was one of the workers who lost their jobs in the football club's recent cost-cutting exercise, it has emerged.
Robert Osborne, son of former Blues star Roger, had worked in the ticket office at Portman Road on a temporary contract for about a year.
The 24-year-old, who was employed through a recruitment agency, left the club last week, when Town made 18 redundancies.
He said: "I don't have a big problem with the club about it. I was only on a temporary contract and had decided not to go permanent because I was thinking of going travelling. So it was my own fault really.

"As soon as the job cuts were announced, I knew I would be going. It was a case of last in, first out. It was nothing personal."
Robert said he was hoping to go travelling in Australia in the near future. He had previously worked in insurance and played football for Westerfield, where his father was manager.
