After spending 22 years away, Ipswich Town were promoted to the Premier League.

After finishing second in League One the previous season, Ipswich Town secured their second successive promotion by defeating Huddersfield 2-0 in an exciting match at Portman Road.

Leading Leeds by a narrow three points going into the season finale, the Tractor Boys, led by Kieran McKenna, needed just a draw to advance from the Championship.

The win secured both Ipswich’s promotion and Huddersfield’s relegation to League One, cementing Ipswich’s record as the only club to achieve back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League, along with Southampton in 2012.

The atmosphere outside the stadium was electric with anticipation before kickoff, as the Ipswich supporters lit smoke bombs and flares. Inside, the tension built as Ipswich controlled the opening exchanges and almost broke the stalemate in the twenty-fiveth minute.

Then the moment of magic happened: Wes Burns was unmarked when Conor Chaplin’s accurate throw reached him, and the crowd erupted in delight as the Welshman buried the ball into the goal. The celebrations carried over into the second half when Omari Hutchinson showed off his skill and dribbled past defenders to score a powerful goal from beyond the area that put an end to Ipswich.

Fans erupted onto the field in celebration of an incredible journey of tenacity and will as the final whistle rang.

Hailed as a “incredible” team, manager Kieran McKenna promised that they will keep up their hard work during the summer.

McKenna shouted, “What a ride it’s been!” “The guys have performed really well. This trip has shown commitment and collaboration. I am grateful to my family for their steadfast support. Let us cherish the occasion and enjoy the festivities while anticipating the difficulties of the next season. Ipswich Town has tremendous futures ahead of it.
