Keeper Marsden Extends Leiston Loan
Saturday, 7th Jan 2017 20:47
Young Town keeper Jacob Marsden has extended his loan with Ryman League Premier Division Leiston to the end of the season.
The 20-year-old, who signed a one-year deal with an option for a further season with the Blues in the summer having come through the academy, joined Leiston in September and has made 21 appearances including today's 6-0 win at Burgess Hill Town.
Leiston manager Glenn Driver told his club’s official website: "I'm pleased to have signed Jacob till the end of the season. He will gain a lot more experience playing for us and I'm sure he will continue to improve as the games come thick and fast.
“Jacob at just 20 has played more football since joining us than he has in the last three years after he suffered a serious injury and his development was cut short.
“I'm pleased to have him on board and we look forward to watching his development as we enter the second half of the season. I would also like to thank Ipswich Town for allowing us to have Jacob till the end of the season."
Meanwhile, Town's U18s lost 2-0 away against Coventry City this morning, Kyle Finn scoring both goals for the Sky Blues.

Where Are We Now? by Steve_M
Well, ultimately it is now a question of a change of manager now or at the end of the season. Mick McCarthy has dragged the cycle out to four years rather than the 18 months of his more hapless predecessors but there is clearly a need for a fresh approach at the club.
The Moore You Ignore Mick by Mullet
Day 14 in the TWTD madhouse and all is far from clear. Months of second-rate drama and second-rate football seem to end with a quiet ovation for Mick McCarthy and his men. With his captain coming out in the media to air publicly the wounds of he and his colleagues, another young player is welcomed and warned off it by Mick.
The Identity Crisis of Modern Football by wkj
Like so many others my age, my Grandad bought me up on Ipswich Town. A great club with family ties, involvement and commitment to the larger Suffolk community, and a privilege to support. In those days it seems a lot of clubs had similar connections to their fans.
A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts by monty_radio
The Marley deal was dead, no doubt about it. Scrooge looked again as the knocker smiled in a kindly, fair-play sort of fashion, then slowly faded away. He turned the key and entered his very own gloomy arena. A large chunk of ceiling, disturbed by the mere turning of the key, struck him as he climbed the rickety stair to the upper section.

None of the club’s successful managers over the years had massive resources available to them, but none have had to compete in leagues as inequitable as the current Championship.
