ITFC vs SPURS – 2018 Academy Showcase Match

16th May 2018

A mixed Under 15 / Under 16 ITFC team took on Tottenham Hotspur at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon (12th May) in this season’s Academy Showcase match.

The fixture, which was played for the Dick Parker Trophy in memory of long-serving ITFC employee and lifelong Spurs fan Dick who passed away last December, was won 6-1 by a strong Tottenham side.

Town’s consolation was scored by Zak Brown, who was on target for the hosts when he converted the rebound after seeing his initial penalty saved. The match report can be found on the main ITFC Club website here:
