Around The Grounds: Portman Road, Ipswich Town

By Ollie Irish

Our series of photo essays celebrating British football stadia continues today with a look at Portman Road, home to Ipswich Town since 1884.

Portman Road FACT: “In 1914, the ground was commandeered by the British Army for use as a training camp for the duration of the First World War. Control of Portman Road was not returned to the club until two years after the end of the war and significant work was required to repair damage to the ground caused by heavy machinery.” (@ Wiki)

Anyone got any Portman Road-related tales? Would love to hear them.
