Events[edit]

  • June 5, 2006 - Jim Magilton replaces Joe Royle as manager.
  • November 19, 2006 - Town defeat Norwich City 3-1 in the East Anglian derby, with Danny Haynes scoring two late goals.
  • April 28, 2007 - Ipswich effectively relegate Leeds United with a draw at Elland Road. The game is stopped half a minute early because of crowd trouble, with the responsible fans removed from the ground. Referee Nigel Miller controversially brings the teams back out to end the game. Ipswich hold on to a draw and would have won the game had their goals not been ruled out for offside.
