Non-League Winger on Trial
Friday, 4th Jan 2013 11:26
Banbury United winger Kynan Isaac has spent the week on trial with the Blues. The 20-year-old will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division player Tyrone Mings, who made the leap from Chippenham to Championship football with Town only last month.
Banbury manager Edwin Stein, the brother of one-time Town loanee Mark, says the former Oxford City player has the right attitude to impress the Blues staff: “He’s got a hell of a chance. Mick McCarthy is a good, fair manager and he will have a good look at him.
“You can see the desire and the hunger Kynan has to succeed and you have to feed it. He has been excellent and I can’t fault his commitment.
“He’s led the line well for me and created havoc among opposition defences. He’s a joy to have around.
“He’s definitely got the ability to do it. He’s well made up. It’s now down to Ipswich – it’s their call.”
Left-sided Isaac was with Reading’s youth set-up before being released and joining Oxford City in February 2011. He moved on to Banbury in October of last year and since then has scored six goals in 15 games.
Isaac had a trial with Stoke in the summer and earlier in the season a similar spell with Brighton was cut short by injury.

Beginnings by therealtractorboy
I am 13 and have started writing for a new school magazine (I would like a career in sports journalism). I am writing about ITFC. The theme for this issue is beginnings and I have worked that into the article whilst summarising Mick McCarthy's reign here.
Nowhere Fast by Mullet
"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
So This is Me ... by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date by roysboys
Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)? by AndrewPC
Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.
