Ipswich Town’s 12 Greats of Christmas: Number 3 – Mick Mills
Every day in the run-up to Christmas, we’re counting down the greatest players in Ipswich Town’s history – and today we’ve reached number three, a former England captain.
Ipswich captain through the Robson glory years, Mick Mills was a born leader.
He inherited the captaincy at a very young age, after Bill Baxter’s ignominious departure.
As well as that responsibility, Mills was also comfortable and dependable playing in both full-back positions, and occasionally midfield.
In 1982, he had the honour of being captain of England in the 1982 World Cup finals in Spain.
