SUPER Blues fans will be putting the boot in for Ipswich Town tomorrow when they join the fun and mayhem of one of the week's most popular football television programmes.

Seven Tractor Boy fanatics will be travelling to London to take part in the live broadcast of the weekly Sky Sports show, Soccer AM.

The Evening Star's newspaper sales manager, Ben Collins, will be among the group of friends who received their invitation to appear on the show earlier this week.

His mate Matthew Blowers, emailed Soccer AM to put their names forward to represent Ipswich Town's fans, and after checks to ensure they were bona fide Tractor Boys supporters, they were accepted.

He and Ben will be playing a part in the show from 9am to noon tomorrow with their friends, Adrian Barker, Eddie Brooks, Dave Chapman, Nick Hammond and Andy Smith.

During the morning they will get involved in various antics, such as shooting balls into the mouth of Sven Goran Eriksson in an attempt to beat the scores of previous weeks, and one of them will be invited to parade down the catwalk with the show's Soccorettes.

Soccer AM, which is presented by Tim Lovejoy and Helen Chamberlain, has become essential Saturday morning viewing for football fans across the country.

While the beloved game is the main subject of the programme, there is plenty of other fun to keep viewers entertained, including a host of special guests.

Past guests have included Oasis and actor, Ray Winstone. On tomorrow's show Alec Stewart and Charlie Nicholas will be joining the presenters on the sofa.

Soccer AM is a football show like no other. It is not a programme for soccer pundits to merely discuss the merits of the game, but three hours of footie related mayhem.

n The Ipswich Town fans can be seen on Soccer AM on Sky Sports from 9am to noon tomorrow.
