BRIEF HISTORY of IPSWICH TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB (reproduced from 'Wikipedia' pages)

The club was founded as an amateur side in 1878 and were known as Ipswich A.F.C. until 1888 when they merged with Ipswich Rugby Club to form Ipswich Town Football Club. They joined the Southern Amateur League in 1907 and, with results improving steadily, became champions in the 192122 season. The club won the league a further three times, in 192930, 193233 and 193334, before becoming founder members of the Eastern Counties Football League at the end of the 193435 season. A year later, the club turned professional and joined the Southern League, which they won in its first season and finished third in the next. Ipswich were elected to The Football League on 30 May 1938, and played in Division Three (South) until the end of the 195354 season, when they won the title and promotion to Division Two. The club were immediately relegated back to Division Three (South) the following year at the end of a poor season. The club won the Division Three (South) title again in 195657, and returned to the higher division. This time, Ipswich established themselves in Division Two, and as the division champions, won promotion to the top level of English football, Division One, in 196061.

In the top flight for the first time, Ipswich became Champions of the Football League at the first attempt in 196162. As English league champions, they qualified for the 196263 European Cup, defeating Maltese side Floriana 141 on aggregate before losing to Milan. Two years after winning the league title, Ipswich slipped down to the Second Division in 1964, conceding 121 league goals in 42 games. The club remained in the Second Division for four years until Ipswich won promotion in the 196768 season, winning the division by a single point ahead of Queens Park Rangers. Ipswich won two major trophies after several seasons in top flight European football. The successful period began in 1973 when the club won the Texaco Cup and finished fourth in the league, qualifying for the UEFA Cup for the first time. By the late 1970s, Robson had built a strong side with talent in every department. Ipswich regularly featured in the top five of the league and in the UEFA Cup. At their peak in 1980, they beat Manchester United 60 at Portman Road, a game where United goalkeeper Gary Bailey also saved three penalties. Major success came in 1978 when Ipswich beat Arsenal at Wembley Stadium to win their only FA Cup trophy, the triumph was followed by a UEFA Cup victory in 1981. The club also finished as league runners-up in 1981 and 1982.
