First Teamers and Trialist in Action Against West Ham
Tuesday, 22nd Nov 2011 10:16
First-team squad regulars Daryl Murphy, Nathan Ellington, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Reece Wabara are all set to feature in this afternoon’s behind-closed-doors reserves friendly against West Ham at Playford Road. While there’s been no official confirmation from Town, we understand that Icelandic trialist Teddy Bjarnason will also be involved.
Mark Kennedy, Tommy Smith, Luke Hyam, Jack Ainsley, Shane O'Connor, Cormac Burke and Joe Whight are also set to play, while schoolboy Byron Lawrence, 15, who manager Paul Jewell recently tipped for a first team debut this season, is on the bench.
Murphy is now over the hamstring he pulled in the reserves game against Arsenal, but winger Lee Martin is out of today’s match with a minor niggle having initially been down to play.
Fans were initially invited along to the game but there was a change of heart, presumably because of the potential involvement of trialists on either or both sides with there being significantly less red tape if they play in matches with no spectators present.

A Reflection by paulthebluealien
I would love to be the one to say I told you so. But that is just rude, is it not?
Doom and Gloom – But Why? by paulthebluealien
It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.
Marcus Evans and Mr John by HarryfromBath
Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.

Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
