Ipswich Town’s league championship-winning goalscorer Ted Phillips has died at the age of 84, it has been announced.

Phillips formed a partnership with Ray Crawford in the 1961-62 season when they won the top-flight title under Alf Ramsey.

He played for the club in 1953-64, when Town rose from the old Third Division south to the top of the First Division.

He also played for Leyton Orient, Luton Town and Colchester United.
