IPSWICH TOWN chairman David Sheepshanks today vowed to ride out the storm and fight for a better future for his club.

After a series of protests added to the gloom at Portman Road during Town's 2-1 defeat by West Ham, Sheepshanks said today: "I've got a job to do for the club.

"Right now the success of the club is most important and we are all committed to achieving that."

Protests came regularly throughout the match, with a "Sheepshanks Out" banner unfurled in the top tier of the North Stand and a number of anti-board chants.

Some protesting fans refused to leave their seats at the end of the match.
