This team (affectionately known as "The Mighty") is made up of colts from recent seasons, new and occasional players plus a bunch of non training talent and old guys who just can't give it up.
The serious reason behind The Mighty Ipswich RFC is to help transition youngsters into the rigour and social niceties of senior rugby and to maintain their interest in the game. Too many of them give up once they get a few quid and mum and dad don't act as their taxi to the clubhouse, or other distractions eat up their time and money.
So Ipswich 3rd XV was re-formed in 2016/17 and gradually the squad knitted into a fun bunch who supported the youngsters and new players in particular.
Towards the end of that season, they even started to play some half decent rugby. SO watch out! The Mighty have their fledgling season under their belt and will be a force to be reckoned with for 2017/18.
Tis also true that some of the more committed youngsters climbed the ladder and played for our Magpies and 1st XV's - well done!
