IPSWICH Town have produced many 'Magic Moments' - and over the last two-and-a-half years the Evening Star, the EADT's sister tile, has run a series featuring 100 of the best in the club's illustrious history.

Some have been great goals in games, others have just been the match itself while there have also been some landmark moments and specific occasions that made up my 100 Ipswich Town Magic Moments.

To mark the end of the series we are offering readers the chance to win one of three fantastic prizes.

First prize will be a retro 1978 FA Cup final shirt signed by Roger Osborne, scorer of the only goal as Ipswich upset the odds to defeat Arsenal at Wembley.

Second prize is a pair of tickets to an Ipswich Town home game, providing the lucky winner with the chance to see Roy Keane's side in action in the second half of this season.

And the third prize is a copy of the book Ipswich Town FC, the 1960s, Ramsey to Robson, produced by the EADT and Evening Star and signed by author Terry Hunt.

All you have to do is study the full list below and see if you can match my choice of the top three magic moments.

Readers should bear in mind that I have seen the vast majority of Ipswich's home games, including every European tie over the last 40 years, some memorable FA Cup ties and the unforgettable play-off semi-final victory over Bolton, and twice seen Town win at Wembley.
