Ipswich confirm tribute to Robson

Sir Bobby Robson
Robson's managerial career spanned five decades

Sir Bobby Robson's widow Lady Elsie will be guest of honour at Ipswich Town on Saturday as the club pay tribute to their former manager, who died in July.

A parade of former Ipswich players and coaching staff will precede the match against Newcastle United.

At half-time, Lady Elsie and sons Mark and Paul will rename the North Stand as the Sir Bobby Robson Stand.

They will release 709 balloons, marking the number of games Robson was in charge of at Portman Road.
