Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Bent for the Premier League match against Liverpool, played at Portman Road on 9th February 2002. Unfortunately for The Tractor Boys they were on the receiving end of a 6-0 drubbing against the Reds in this fixture with both Michael Owen and Emile Heskey scoring braces for the visitors and Xavier and Sami Hyypiä adding the extras. Bent had received the Barclaycard Player of the Month award before the game and played the full 90 minutes. The striker enjoyed a fine season in the top flight bagging 10 goals in 27 appearances. Despite his decent performance Bent couldn't stop Ipswich from being relegated with an 18th place finish. The striker had joined the side from Blackburn in November 2001 and he stayed at Portman road until 2004 when he joined Everton. A true English journeyman Bent played for a whole host of English sides including Brentford, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Charlton Athletic to name just a few.
