Leddy and U18s Looking Forward to Burnley Clash
Thursday, 12th Jan 2012 16:27
Academy midfielder Jonathan Leddy says the young Blues are looking forward to their FA Youth Cup fourth round tie against Burnley at Turf Moor on Friday evening (KO 7pm). The U18s beat Leeds 2-0 in the third round at Portman Road.
The Republic of Ireland U17 international , who travelled to Lancashire with the rest of the squad this afternoon, told the club site: "All the lads are really looking forward to the game and hopefully we can get a good result.
“We've been struggling a little bit in the league this season but the Youth Cup is our main focus and we're all fired up for the game.
"It will be a new experience for us, as we are away from Portman Road this time, but it won't faze us and everyone is fit and raring to go."
A win will see Russell Osman’s boys take on Reading or West Bromwich Albion away in the fifth round.
Squad: Conor O’Donnell, Dan O’Neil, David October, Aaron Jones, Joe Whight, Callum Bennett, Jideofo Maduako, Nicolay Schrøder, Lewis Acott, Jonathan Leddy, Shaun Meikle, Gunnar Thorsteinnssen, Elliot Scotcher, Mark Timlin, Byron Lawrence, Jack Simmons, Tom Winter, Jack Marriott, Carel Tiofack.

Mick McCarthy’s Magic Method by realprojection
In the modern football world, most match reports are adorned by a plethora of stats that may (or may not) tell us something extra about the relative performance of each team – eg BBC reports show shots, shots on target, possession and fouls.
We Couldn't Wish for an Easier Run of Games by BossMan
With the team currently out of form I reckon the upcoming set of fixtures up to the end of January couldn't look much better for us (based merely on the league table as of this morning).
Are Our Goalkeepers Both the Same? by BlueRaider
Many fans seem to think there is little to choose between our goalkeepers, I disagree.
Mick Not the Man for Town (Part Two) by BossMan
Last August I wrote a blog suggesting that Mick was the wrong man for the job, despite the fact that he had just signed a new three-year deal.
What Do We Expect of Our Club? by DurhamTownFan
A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on the subject of Town’s playing style under Mick McCarthy. Having been humbled at Old Trafford, I wanted to see how everyone felt about what I perceived to be a rather attritional and outdated brand of football seen here and in pretty much every other Ipswich game since McCarthy arrived.
