Wickham Delighted to Extend Contract
Friday, 8th Apr 2011 16:56
Striker Connor Wickham says he’s delighted to have put pen to paper on an extension to his contract aimed at keeping him at Portman Road until 2014. Blues boss Paul Jewell revealed that the 18-year-old had further committed himself to the club this morning.
Wickham said: “I’m obviously delighted to have signed a new contract and feel that I’m at the right club to progress as a player.
“After having a look over the last two years I approached this season wanting to make a real impact. It didn’t start well with me getting injured but I feel I have moved forward as a player since I got back in the side.
“I’m playing games every week, I’m enjoying my football and the club is moving in the right direction and that’s all I want.”
Chief executive Simon Clegg added: “Having Connor committed to Ipswich Town until 2014 is great news for this football club.
“We look forward to him playing an important part in taking us forward to where we want to be, in the Premier League.”

Is It All Over? by paulthebluealien
Sorry, that title is meant to be completely tongue-in-cheek and a slight dig at those Ipswich fans who have suddenly become disillusioned with our promotion push over the course of a single game.
A Day to Define History by RaymondovicBlue
As we celebrate the day Christians say defined history - our beloved Town take on high flying Bournemouth in the game that will surely define our season - and possibly theirs. They are high flying and I'll be looking to the Sky... as I sit in front of the TV in the home of many Bournemouth fans to shout for my team!
Crunch Time - Next Two Games Likely to Decide our Fate by Pickersblue22
This is undoubtedly the most exciting time to be an Ipswich Town supporter in a decade. For the first time since the days of Joe Royle, we have a chance of promotion, possibly automatic. Being sat in sixth place with seven games left, the task is in our own hands.
Promotion Push by akjlitfc
As we reach the final eight games of the season, the slump in form that we hoped would be brief has become persistent, warranting questioning from fans and pundits alike.
