For a list of all Ipswich Town players with a Wikipedia article, see the Ipswich Town F.C. players category, and for the current first-team squad, see Ipswich Town F.C.: Current squad.

Ipswich Town are an English association football club based in Ipswich, Suffolk. The club was founded in 1878 and turned professional in 1936. Ipswich have played at all professional levels of English football and have participated in European football since the 1960s. As of 2010, the team plays in the second tier of English football, the Championship. Since 1936, more than 400 players have represented the first-team. Mick Mills has made more appearances than any other Ipswich player; he is one of five men to have represented the club on 500 or more occasions, having played 741 times between 1966 and 1983. Ray Crawford is the club's all-time top scorer, with 203 goals in 354 matches, while Ted Phillips scored the most goals in a single season—41 in the 1956–57 season. The most capped player in the club's history is Northern Ireland's Allan Hunter, who represented his country on 47 occasions.

The list includes all players that have played 100 or more first-class professional matches for the club. It also includes some players who have played fewer than 100 matches, if they represented their country whilst playing for the club,[1] and players who have set a club playing record, such as goalscoring or transfer fee records.[2] Finally, all players inducted into the Ipswich Town Hall of Fame, whose inaugural members were selected in 2007 by a ballot of former Ipswich players, are included.[3]

List of players[edit]

Players are initially listed according to the date of their first-team debut for the club. Appearances are for first-team competitive matches only, including substitute appearances, while wartime and local cup matches (such as the Ipswich Hospital Cup) are excluded. Players who left the club prior to 2006 are referenced by Hayes, the others are referenced by Soccerbase.

Statistics are correct as of 20 February 2012.
