Mariner to Take Lambe to Toronto
Tuesday, 25th Oct 2011 13:53
Released Town winger Reggie Lambe is set to join Blues legend Paul Mariner at MLS side Toronto FC. Bermudian international Lambe left Portman Road at the end of last season.
Mariner, Toronto’s director of player development, saw Lambe score for Bermuda in a 1-1 friendly draw with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in Florida in August with the 20-year-old subsequently spending time training with the Canadian club.
Lambe, who was on trial with Newport County, Southend and Bristol Rovers during the summer, has also trained with the Bermuda Hogges back in his home country since his Town exit with their owner Paul Scope, a friend of Mariner’s, confident Lambe can do well in North American football: “I hope a deal will be done and that Reggie can relaunch his career with Toronto.
“Devarr Boyles [Bermuda FA's youth director] and Khano Smith [who played for Mariner at the New England Revolution] have spoken to Reggie and they both also believe he would do well in the MLS.
“I think the MLS would suit Reggie’s style of play and Paul Mariner is keen for the move to go ahead. He has also expressed interest in other Bermuda players.”
Lambe made four Carling Cup starts and two Championship sub appearances during his time with the Blues after coming through the academy.

First up, a confession. I didn't attend a single Ipswich Town game last season. It was the first season in about a decade that I completely sat out.

What's the Stay Away Fans' Excuse Now? An Open Letter to Certain Town Fans by MikeDove33
To my fellow Ipswich Town fans, I’ve often thought about writing an open letter to other Ipswich fans over the past 1-2 years. I always eventually went off the idea, due to the fact that the negativity it may have received from certain fans who only seem to thrive on matters of a negative nature at ITFC, would outweigh any positive outcome.
