Toon Army tribute to Sir Bobby Robson

Posted on

A special Toon Army edition of the East Anglian Daily Times was produced for visiting Newcastle United supporters on Easter Monday.

The occasion was Sir Bobby Robson Day – when Ipswich Town and Newcastle fans joined together to pay tribute to the much-loved Sir Bobby Robson, who managed both clubs.

The EADT’s tribute edition had nine pages of memories of Sir Bobby, from both Ipswich and Newcastle, with an alternative front page especially for fans visiting from the north-east.

Terry Hunt, EADT editor, said: "Ipswich and Newcastle supporters all love Sir Bobby, and the meetings between the two teams are always a special opportunity to pay a united tribute to the great man. We hope all the fans – whether Ipswich or Newcastle – enjoyed our special edition."
