Turnstile Blues on sale before Brighton match – and online now

TB3Turnstile Blues 3: Children of the Revolution is still available. Our sellers will be outside Portman Road tomorrow (Saturday, 28th September) from 2pm. Look for them around the ground – there’ll be someone by the statue of Sir Alf and by the entrance to the South/Sir Alf Ramsey/Churchman’s stand. Only £1.

This issue is mainly about the Academy and young players and includes:

– an in-depth interview with former Town player Adam Tanner by Emma Corlett.

Grant Bage asks “what makes a successful Academy?”

Nick Ames writes about youth development in West Africa.

Rob Freeman – who understands these things – explains what the Elite Player Performance Plan might mean for us.

Alasdair Ross wonders whether Town might have scouted for young players closer to home in the past.

– There’s a review and analysis of the Academy’s 2012/3 season by Joe Fairs.

Susan Gardiner writes about how Sir Bobby Robson cared for his young players and there’s also a shameless plug for her new book, Ipswich Town: A History (available from all good shops that sell books).

All of which has been put together brilliantly with amusing and insightful additions by the editor Gavin Barber.

It’s only £1 and you can buy it from our friendly sellers by the statue of Sir Alf outside the Portman Road ground on Saturday before the match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Copies are also be available from here. Printed copies cost £2.50 or you can pay £1.50 and we’ll send you an e-book version in the form of a PDF by e-mail.

Payment can be made by Paypal or you can send us a cheque in the post. Details here.

Turnstile Blues is a not-for-profit publication and our charges are only to cover our costs.
