Mariner to Take Lambe to Toronto
Tuesday, 25th Oct 2011 13:53
Released Town winger Reggie Lambe is set to join Blues legend Paul Mariner at MLS side Toronto FC. Bermudian international Lambe left Portman Road at the end of last season.
Mariner, Toronto’s director of player development, saw Lambe score for Bermuda in a 1-1 friendly draw with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in Florida in August with the 20-year-old subsequently spending time training with the Canadian club.
Lambe, who was on trial with Newport County, Southend and Bristol Rovers during the summer, has also trained with the Bermuda Hogges back in his home country since his Town exit with their owner Paul Scope, a friend of Mariner’s, confident Lambe can do well in North American football: “I hope a deal will be done and that Reggie can relaunch his career with Toronto.
“Devarr Boyles [Bermuda FA's youth director] and Khano Smith [who played for Mariner at the New England Revolution] have spoken to Reggie and they both also believe he would do well in the MLS.
“I think the MLS would suit Reggie’s style of play and Paul Mariner is keen for the move to go ahead. He has also expressed interest in other Bermuda players.”
Lambe made four Carling Cup starts and two Championship sub appearances during his time with the Blues after coming through the academy.

The Pleasure, the Privilege, Decline? by Mullet
There's a 6ft 3in hole in Ipswich Town right now. Behind the tears in some blue eyes as we enter the international break without Daryl Murphy, the changing of the old guard at Ipswich looks almost complete.
A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back by Pickersblue22
After nearly four years, we know exactly what we get. Mick McCarthy arrived in November 2012 with the club at a low ebb. He lifted us from a dreary, uninspiring outfit, consistently languishing in mid-table, to the surprising, joyful, wonderful highs of 2014/15.
Far East Anglians by Marcus
I’ve never really liked the term ‘Far East’ as it tends to conjure images of China and Japan rather than the plethora of different countries and cultures in South East Asia. However, for the sake of it, ‘Far East Anglians’ works quite well to indicate Town (and the other lot's) supporters here in Asia.

It's fair to say that despite having no expectations, the start of the season hasn't gone to plan so far for Mick McCarthy. Quite clearly six points from six and progression to the second round of the EFL Cup would have been the aim before a ball was kicked - it's fair to say we've been a little off in that respect.
