Ainsley Nets as Reserves Beat Palace
Tuesday, 21st Feb 2012 16:00
Defender Jack Ainsley netted the only goal in the final moments as Town’s reserves beat Crystal Palace 1-0 in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Playford Road this afternoon.
The Town side included the likes of Josh Carson, Lee Bowyer, Nathan Ellington, Ryan Stevenson and Joe Whight as well as a number of Academy youngsters such as midfielders Byron Lawrence and Lewis Acott and defender Callum Bennett, who was last week told he would be offered a professional deal.
Perhaps notably, given Reading’s reported loan interest, we understand that Jimmy Bullard wasn’t involved, while both sides are believed to have fielded as yet unknown trialists, which led to the decision to bar spectators yesterday.

You're the Bunn for ME, Harry by Mullet
After freelance journalist Alan Nixon threw the social media space of ITFC fans into turmoil, the expectation of a striker from a Premier League club predictably sent cynics and dreamers into action.
'Gay Footballers? No, the Fans Wouldn't Have It' by Tristan90
There has been a lot of coverage of late of the anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England in 1967 and much of it celebrates how far we have come in this country in terms of equality and acceptance.
A Crossroads by TBT
Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
