Ellington Training With Crewe
Friday, 8th Feb 2013 11:52
Former Blue Nathan Ellington is training with League One Crewe Alexandra having had his contract with Town settled by mutual consent at the end of last month. The former Wigan, West Brom and Watford man made only three starts – just one in the league – and 16 sub appearances during 18 months at Portman Road.
Crewe manager Steve Davis told Thisisstaffordshire.co.uk that the 31-year-old is being given the chance to prove himself: "Nathan lives in Manchester and he's coming down to work with us to get himself fit and going.
"He's a free agent so we will have a look at that situation. He's played at the top level and he's been a thorn in many defences' sides.
"If we can improve the team we will do it. A lot of players don't peak until their 30s, I was playing my best football at 32. We've not promised him anything, just get in the place to train and we will see how it goes."

Isn't This Lovely? by Luka
We have a headache, though we don't need paracetamol. The headache is one of selection. Who to put in? Where? How do we line up?
Mick McCarthy: Man-Management 101 by everhopeful
It’s October 2012. We knew it would happen the second Stephen Henderson's error saw Derby go in level at the break.
Time for a Change? by therealtractorboy
For the last seven years of my life I have made the trip to see Ipswich Town every other Saturday. Every August, I hope. Every Saturday at 2:55, I hope. This season, for a very much welcome change, these hopes may not be shattered.

Ladies, gentleman and Ipswich Town fans everywhere may I present to you bogeyland. Which for all you cryptic geniuses out there means only one thing.
Patience, Sweet Patience by Blueray
Right out at the outset, I want to make it clear that I don't believe we are potential league leaders, nor even automatic promotion contenders come to think of it. In fact, if we make the play-offs, I think it would be a remarkable achievement and one that we don't fully appreciate.
