The salary cap that was introduced in League One and Two has been scrapped after an appeal by the PFA was successful.
It was revealed back in August that the bottom two tiers in the EFL had voted to bring in the new measures, which would see salary caps of £2.5m in League One and £1.5m in League Two.
Despite the vote going through, it was a decision that some clubs weren’t pleased with, and Ipswich Town were one of those.
As a club with big resources for League One standards, owner Marcus Evans voted against the proposal, so news that it has been lifted has pleased the Tractor Boys.
Can you name each of these 17 ex-Ipswich Town players just by looking at these 3 clues?
Many feel this is a chance for the club to kick-on and show ambition, although there’s doubts from a section as to whether Evans will do that anyway.
Here we look at some of the comments to the news from Twitter…
The salary cap being scrapped is amazing news for #itfc! Never thought I’d be happy that overpaid players can be paid even more but still… nevertheless this shouldn’t mean that the pressure to get promoted should be off!
