Ipswich Town Official Supporters’ Club members are being offered the chance to fire their questions at the club’s management duo Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor later this month.

The pair will be part of a panel that have put themselves up for a question-and-answer session as part of the Supporters’ Club Annual General Meeting, which will take place at Portman Road on Thursday, Ocotober 29 (7.30pm).

Following the success of last year’s event, the club’s Official Supporters Club’s AGM will once again be in the form of an “open evening”, with fans having a chance to meet and question management representing many areas of the club’s activities, both off-field and on-field, including owner Marcus Evans’ right-hand man, managing director Ian Milne.

Liz Edwards, chair of the Supporters’ Club, which recently opened a new branch in Stowmarket to add to ones in Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Newmarket and Long Melford, said: ”I’m really pleased that ITFC recognised how successful this event was last year and are supporting it again.

“It’s a great chance for fans to meet, talk with and question the people who are responsible for the running of the club, including managing director Ian Milne, club secretary and supporter liaison officer Sally Webb, as well as representatives from many other areas.”

She added: “It is fantastic too that Mick and Terry will join us — it’s always a lively session.”

The event takes place in Legends Bar at Portman Road on Thursday, October 29 with doors opening at 7pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.

The evening also includes the formal business of the Supporters’ Club AGM, so evidence of membership will need to be shown at the door, for exmaple, season ticket or Silver / Ambassador / Junior Blues club cards.
