Kiwomya and Other Staff Set to Stay
Saturday, 15th Jan 2011 15:01
Town manager Paul Jewell says most of the existing backroom staff will be kept on at Portman Road under his regime, for the time being at least. Reserves coach Chris Kiwomya, goalkeeping-coach Jim Hollman and fitness coaches Antonio Gomez and Simon Thadani are set to remain with the club.
Jewell has added his former Bradford strike partner Sean McCarthy to his coaching staff, while his long-time associate Chris Hutchings is expected to join the club this week.
Roy Keane's coaches Tony Loughlan and Charlie McParland left Town on Thursday, but for the rest of the staff will stay on with Kiwomya with the new boss and the squad at the Den today: “Chris is here at the moment. He’s travelling with us to Millwall.
"That’s an ongoing situation. I’ve spoken to all the staff and I’ve told them the situation that as things go, we’ll see. They might not like me! I can’t see that happening, but you never know!
“I don’t see that as a problem and if something’s going to happen it will happen properly. I don’t want people looking over their shoulders.
“We’re starting a new slate. Other changes were made before I got here, the decisions were made before I got here, now it’s up to me to see how it goes. Hopefully, we’ll get a few results and getting a few points on the board.”

A Curious Hat-Trick by JC62
I’ll straight away advise you that the following might not be what you’re used to reading on an Ipswich Town website. I have to confess that I’m a lifelong Fulham fan and my usual scribblings are carried on the Fulham Focus website. However I achieved a curious hat-trick by attending Saturday’s game and thought my own little trip down memory lane might be of interest.

Sixty years ago this year Town won the top division, so if you look upon your relationship with Ipswich Town as some sort of marriage this year marks the diamond jubilee of that remarkable achievement.

Just after Conor Chaplin crashed home his penalty and Town's fourth against Gillingham on Saturday, I turned to my friends in the stand and uttered the [probably] famous last words of “the road to Wembley starts here boys!”
