Our Rivals: Ipswich Town

For many years the Lilywhites deadly rivals were Ipswich Town, so much so that both clubs were invited to join the new Eastern Counties League in 1935 but the Club's Committee declined the invitation. Though Ipswich accepted the offer and were elected to the Football League in for the 1938-39, they had originally applied in 1937 but were rejected only to be accepted the following year.
