Ipswich striker Darren Ambrose celebrates scoring a goal
Yes! Becky Jago's an Ipswich fan!

Becky Jago

I enjoyed playing all sports at school - except tennis! I loved netball and I was sports captain for my school two years.

I used to play football with my brother in our back garden all the time.

My brother got the upper hand almost every time, but he's brilliant at football, so I didn't mind so much.

Watch Becky's talk about her fitness plan

Whenever I play football, I play up front.

I used to play there for my Anglia TV team in Norwich, where I used to work before I came to Newsround.

I also used to play for my university team and before that, a team in Suffolk.

Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to play this season.

I bought a pair of new astroturf boots recently, but they're sitting shiny and new on my shelf!

I like watching football, but I'm not a regular viewer. I support Ipswich Town, but I live in Norwich, Ipswich's deadly rivals!
