West Ham star Aaron Cresswell wishes former team Ipswich Town best of luck on Twitter

Aaron Cresswell

He and former West Ham midfielder Jack Collison are hoping Ipswich Town come good.

Ipswich Town and Norwich City go head-to-head today in the first-leg of their Championship play-off final. The Old Farm Derby, as it has come to be known, will see the teams from Suffolk and Norfolk go head-to-head with the hope of making it to the final at Wembley.

Now, two former Ipswich players, both with West Ham connections, have wished the Tractor Boys all the best in their first-leg.

25-year-old left back Aaron Cresswell arrived at Upton Park from Ipswich Town in the summer, in a deal initially thought to be in the region of £3.75 million, rising to £7 million, according to Sky Sports. He has been one of the bargains of the season, but does not forget his time at Ipswich.

Jack Collison also played for both clubs. He joined Ipswich Town in September 2014 on a short-term contract after leaving West Ham after an injury prone stint at the club.

He sent this message on Twitter today, hoping Ipswich - complete with former Hammer Freddie Sears - can make their way to the Premier League.

Cresswell in particular will hope to take on his former club next season, if Ipswich make it to the Premier League.
