O'Connor, Murray and Whight Travel to Haverhill
Wednesday, 13th Jul 2011 12:09
Town have confirmed that Shane O'Connor, Ronan Murray and Joe Whight will be in the second string squad which faces Haverhill Rovers at their New Croft ground in a friendly this evening (KO 7.30pm).
Also included in the travelling party are US U20 international keeper Cody Cropper and Northern Ireland U19 international midfielder Cormac Burke, who have both agreed one-year professional deals with the club.
The duo will be second-year scholars this season, despite being a year older than most of those in their final season at the academy, which therefore requires them to sign senior terms.
Northern Ireland U21 international striker Caolan Lavery, who has had his scholarship extended until October after missing three months of last season through injury but is yet to be offered a professional deal, and promising young defender Callum Bennett are also likely to be involved.
Recent Icelandic academy recruit Gunnar Thorsteinsson is in the squad and has been named in Iceland’s U18s for a four-nation tournament in Sweden later this month, in which Town’s Jack Simmons and Elliot Scotcher will also take part for Wales.

How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
