It’s Paul Mariner Day at Ipswich Town today, when the England international’s former two teams, Ipswich Town and Plymouth, play at Portman Road.
The powerful striker, who died last year aged just 68, was the perfect player – strong, skillful, good in the air and capable of scoring goals from anywhere.
Opposition defenders hated playing against him.
The young editor of this publication loved watching Paul Mariner play back in the day, and is proud to publish this YouTube video of Mariner’s Ipswich goals.
Imagine if Mariner was playing in today’s match? It would surely change the best betting odds at the bookies.
Up the Town.
