Town fan's dream job with City
A TOWN supporter working for City- it's not what many Ipswich fans would call their dream job but for Tim Sansom it's just that.But the city in question is premiership team Manchester, and not nationwide Norwich, so he should not have too many divided loyalties.
A TOWN supporter working for City- it's not what many Ipswich fans would call their dream job but for Tim Sansom it's just that.
But the city in question is premiership team Manchester, and not nationwide Norwich, so he should not have too many divided loyalties.
The 23-year-old has just been appointed by Manchester City to help curate a brand new museum, the Manchester City Experience.
He said: "The only job that would be better would be at Portman Road.
"If I could create a museum and tour centre at Ipswich Town that would be my ultimate dream, I would jump at the opportunity.
"This job is a dream though, combining my interests in history, museums and football."

Mr Sansom lived in Rushmere St Andrew and attended Ipswich School before moving to Manchester.
His former history teacher David Warnes said: "I'm absolutely delighted that he has got this job, this really is the perfect job for him.
"It's a case of right man, right job, right time."
Tim continued studying history at the University of Wales before undertaking a Masters in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester.
He did a placement at the National Football Museum in Preston where he gained some of the experience he will be using at Manchester City.
Mr Sansom added: "When the job at Manchester City was advertised I was very excited, I knew I would be in competition with applicants with several years of experience.
"I was absolutely delighted to be appointed."
Although Mr Sansom is enjoying his new job, he is sad to be so far away from Portman Road.
He said: "I hope Ipswich get promoted this season so that I can see them up here in Manchester.
"I'll never lose my Ipswich Town background and hope that one day I have the opportunity to work at the club."
