Ipswich Town Football Club’s skipper David Norris unveils a billboard at Ipswich train station to welcome visitors to the town and Portman Road.
The billboard which was created and installed by Signs Express (Ipswich) measures an impressive eight metres wide and sits above the station’s main ticket office to be seen by visitors and local supporters as they pass through the station.
Club skipper David Norris was unaware that the giant billboard would actually feature himself. “It was a lovely surprise,” David said. “We are fully aware and very appreciative of the standing Ipswich Town has in the local community and I’m honoured to represent the club in this partnership.”
Town chief executive Simon Clegg added: “Working with National Express and with the support of Alan Boagey, the station manager, we are delighted to be able to give a warm Ipswich Town welcome to all visitors to Ipswich. Hopefully it will be seen as a source of pride for all our loyal fans passing through the station.”
