BUTCHER: 'Special memories' of Abbey Stadium

4 August 2015

Manager Terry Butcher is looking forward to returning to the Abbey Stadium this Saturday, a ground he enjoyed visiting as a player.

Saturday's visit to Cambridge will be spark fond memories for manager Terry Butcher, as he returns to the ground where he played one of his first games for Ipswich.
Terry and his assistant, Russell Osman, played for Ipswich at the Abbey Stadium back in the 1977/78 season.

"Me and Russel played there in 1977 and not a lot has changed! Obviously the dressing rooms have but it is still nice to go back to the ground because it has special memories for me as it is where I played one of my first games for Ipswich Town there, alongside Russell, and it will go good to go back", Terry told the clubs website.

Terry and Steve Marsella have visited the Abbey Stadium in recent weeks, scouting out Saturday's opponents and Terry believes Cambridge will make full benefit of the additional income from last year's cup run.

"They are a strong side this year. They obviously have had a good amount of money to spend because of the games against Manchester United last season and they have developed the ground very well", Terry added.
