Ipswich back in the Premier League after 22 years

0 264

The 22 year wait is over.
Ipswich Town are back in the Premier League after 2-0 against Huddersfield Town.
– That’s where we deserve to be, says former Ipswich and England captain Mick Mells.

Ipswich Town only needed to take a point at home to bottom side Huddersfield Town to gain promotion to the Premier League.

Last week, league leaders Leicester secured promotion – and now it is clear that Ipswich will join them.

Barely half an hour into the match, Wes Burns got the chance in the penalty area and scored 1-0 to wild crowd cheers.

Omari Hutchinson made it 2-0 at the start of the second and Ipswich also pressed for a third goal, but the final score read 2-0.

Ipswich is thus making a comeback in the Premier League after 22 years. In the 2001/2002 season, they were eliminated after finishing in 18th place.

The progress is made even more remarkable as the team were newcomers to the Championship this season.

Former Ipswich and England captain Mick Mills celebrates after the final whistle:

– When we were stuck in League One for four years, I wondered if we would ever return to the Premier League. I grew up associating Ipswich with top football, he says in the BBC and continues:

– We are on our way somewhere. It’s where we deserve to be, where we should be. That is what the management and the players have given us. Kieran McKenna (the coach) – thank you.
