Ipswich Town won promotion to the First Division for the first time in its history on winning the Second Division Championship at the end of the 1960-61 season (having entered the league in the Third Division South in the 1938-39 season) under Alf Ramsey.
Ipswich's first top division season was an enormous success, winning the First Division Championship and qualifying for the European Cup at the end of an excellent 1961-62 season.
This was arguably the most remarkable League Championship win in its history, as Ipswich were all but condemned to relegation by virtually all football pundits and journalists at that time.
Alf Ramsey's tactical astuteness, working with a squad of solid but not outstanding players, baffled and astonished the illustrious football clubs involved to produce the would be impossible task of actually winning the league title in Ipswich's first ever season in the top flight.
Ramsey quit the club soon afterwards to take charge of the England team and his 1966 World Cup success would gain himself a knighthood and a place in the book of footballing greats.
After Ramsey took the England job in 1963 and he was replaced at Ipswich by Jackie Milburn.
