Ipswich Town's Championship win of 1961/62 was one the greatest shocks in the history of professional football in England.

No one could have conceived of how a small-town club would break into the top division of English football and take the Championship trophy at their very first attempt, a feat never achieved before or since. This is the story of that season in a match-by-match account set against the background of the news stories of the day.

Also included is an analysis of the players, the team tactics and the manager Alf Ramsey, plus a statistical breakdown of the season.
