Town split with Charitable Trust

Ipswich Town Football Club has announced this week it's cutting ties with the Ipswich Town Charitable Trust, the former community arm of the club, as it looks to focus on improving its Academy.

Ipswich Town Joint Managing Director explains charity split

Ipswich Town Joint Managing Director Ian Milne has explained the reasoning behind splitting with the club's charitable trust:

"With our commitment to producing homegrown talent through our Academy, we want to take a leading role in the area at grassroots level and that's why we are introducing the Advanced Coaching Programme.

"With that in mind and the Trust's decision to move into multi-sports, it's a natural progression to go our separate ways."

– Ian Milne, Ipswich Town Joint Managing Director

Ipswich Town have announced this week that they are cutting ties with the Ipswich Town Charitable Trust, the former community arm of the club, as they look to focus on improving their Academy.

Town have decided to end their partnership with the Trust, focusing instead on a new Advanced Coaching Programme, run by their Academy coaches.

The charity has now changed its name to 'Inspire Suffolk' and moved from its previous base at Portman Road.
