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.

So, Town's rather heroic run of unbeaten games has come crashing to an end.
More Marmite than Marmite - an Evening with Roy Keane by Superfrans
Whether Roy Keane should go down in history as the worst manager to helm Ipswich Town is an arguable point - but it is hard to dispute that he is the most divisive Town employee in the club's 136-year history.
A Moment With Roy in Sainsbury's by TimS
It had been a relentless week at work with endless emails, continuous meetings and a phone that never stopped ringing. Come 5.15pm on Friday, I needed to do some shopping and I did not quite have the energy to drag myself around the aisles.
When The Keane Machine Broke Down by Pessimistic
The American journalist and satirist Ambrose Bierce once said that in each human heart there is a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale and the diversity of character is due to their unequal activity. I suppose in the sad case of Roy Keane we were left with a bit of an ass who turned out to be pig ignorant!
