Sir Alf
                    Ramsey Statue

Alf Ramsey ended his playing career at Tottenham Hotspur and became Ipswich Town manager in 1955. He lead the Portman Road side to the Division Tow Championship in 1960 and in an incredible feat took them onto to become the First Division Champions a year later. He became manager of the England national side in 1963 and led them to the winning of the World Cup in 1966. He was knighted for his services to football in 1967 and became Sir Alf Ramsey. In 1977 he became the first knight ever to manage a football club, when he had a short spell as manager of Birmingham City. He remains as England's most successful manager to date. He passed away in 1999, aged 79.

In addition the statue the road running behind the North Stand has been renamed Sir Alf Ramsey Way. The statue was
unveiled in August 2000.
