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 Price of (Partial) Success by samblueips
A stronger squad, with several consistent performers, has been a crucial factor in Ipswich’s success this season. If we remain a Championship club next season, however, we are likely to see exits. The idea that Mick McCarthy’s holistic strategy, planning for the long-term future of the club, may fall apart because of the magnified finances and stature of Premiership is an unfortunate but very real possibility.

By this point, most fans have usually lost interest, with the Blues sitting in lower mid-table the campaign begins to peter out.
Free Willie(ams) by samblueips
For much of this season, Ipswich were dire to watch. On numerous occasions, ninety minutes felt much longer. It was the only time in my fourteen years of being a season ticket holder that I had felt that way.
