Ipswich are to rename a stand at their Portman Road ground in honour of former manager Sir Bobby Robson.

Ex-England boss Robson, who won the FA Cup and UEFA Cup in a 13-year spell in charge of the Tractor Boys, died last month aged 76.

Town chief executive Simon Clegg said: "The overwhelming majority (of suggestions) wanted the Sir Bobby Robson Stand and with the North Stand being seen as the heart of the club and of the fan base, the fans feel this is the right stand to be renamed."

It is hoped the official unveiling of the stand will take place before kick-off at Ipswich's game with Newcastle on September 26.
