Anyone planning to go to the game by train should note that National Express East Anglia drivers are on strike on the Saturday. Don't know if it affects anyone going via Peterborough but the Liverpool Street route wil be a hourly and crammed if you're extremely lucky.

 

It's the last day of a 6 day strike (I just remembered as I've just checked with my boss that I can work from home all week) so it may be resolved in time but its still a potentially huge pisser.

IPSWICH Town's special link with Newcastle United is set to be celebrated today with the release of a unique item of memorabilia.

 

They may be preparing to do battle on the football field but the two clubs have put sporting rivalries aside to jointly release a scarf in honour of Sir Bobby Robson.

 

The blue and black design features the crests of both clubs with all proceeds from sales going to the former Town and Magpies manager's cancer charity, The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

 

The scarf, which will be priced at £6, went on sale in club shops today.

 

 

The memorial scarf

Ipswich Town communications director Terry Baxter said he hoped fans from both clubs would wear the scarf with pride.

 

“We are delighted to be able to help support Sir Bobby's charity in this way,” he said.

 

“Along with Newcastle United we have developed the match specific blue and white/ black and white scarf.

 

“All profits from the sale of this unique item will go directly to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and I am sure that our supporters will wear the scarf with pride in his memory.”

 

Footage of Sir Bobby's memorial service, which is taking place at Durham Cathedral on Monday, is to be screened live on the Cornhill.

 

As revealed in yesterday's Evening Star, the borough council is appealing to traders and businesses to deck their windows out in Town's colours on the day to ensure the former England boss is given a fitting send off.

 

Town entertain Newcastle on September 26. Prior to the match the North Stand will be renamed in Sir Bobby's honour.

 

Borough council leader Liz Harsant said: “Sir Bobby was not only a national hero, he was an Ipswich hero and will always be a legend here.”
