Chambers Signs for Town
Chambers Signs for Town
Monday, 9th Jul 2012 14:24

Town have confirmed the signing of former Nottingham Forest skipper Luke Chambers on a three-year deal. The 26-year-old free agent was at Portman Road this morning to tie up the detail of his move, having been at the club last Tuesday for a medical and to look at the stadium and training facilities.

Chambers told the club site: "I'm delighted to be an Ipswich Town player. I spoke to a few people in the game that know the manager and Ipswich and they had nothing but good words to say. Coming here was a no-brainer for me."

Manager Paul Jewell added: "There were a few clubs in for Luke but I always felt confident we would get him and I'm delighted we have."

Chambers is Town’s second signing of the summer after Macclesfield’s Elliott Hewitt, who joined for a fee of £250,000 plus top-ups at the end of May, also signing a three-year deal.

Town have announced a press conference at 4pm this afternoon.

dont suppose we'll be seeing the likes of h32, jas0999, itfc1981, to name a few commenting on this story as its not a negative story. they certainly wont be apologising for slagging off clegg, who has just completed his 16th signing in the past year. thats the trouble with being negative on a subject before that story is complete. now it is, lets all just be happy that we've got a player who shoud help greatly to improve the defence. now for a keeper.

Waaaaaaaaaaaahooooooooooooooooo! Will be a great signing. One more CB, at least one GK and Davies or Fuller and I think we're looking in much better shape. Well done to SC/ME/PJ he is of the exact callibre we need. Really hope this puts pay to the rumours that nobody wants to come here. PHIL- Any truth in what I heard that Rhys Taylor(ex Chelski youth GK) might be having a trial with us??

Excellent signing. Well done to Paul , Clegg and Evans for getting this one done. Credit when credit is due.

I am now looking forward to the season ahead, once a new no 1 has been purchased of course. Please note the emphasise on the word purchase. I do not feel we will get anyone any good without paying a fee.

Welcome to Ipswich, Luke Chambers!

unknownicr added 14:36 - Jul 9
An average player who, years back, would be no where near the starting XI. Although at the moment I'm just glad we're getting names on the squad list. Some quality next please.

casanovacrow added 14:36 - Jul 9
good signing, now for some more.

Len_Brennan added 14:37 - Jul 9
Great signing & no fee - well done to those involved.
A decent keeper & another quality right-footed centre half (eg. Keogh from Coventry) and then we'll finally have a defence capable of getting us into the promotion picture.
Keep up the good work, no resting on this laurel.

Utterly Fantastic news...well done Town...welcome Luke.

alliedaz added 14:38 - Jul 9

Really good player and signing, if we can get that Bayern Munich gk too, life will be jammy COYB!

ericgatesrules added 14:39 - Jul 9
Super News. May the force be with you Luke! NEXT....

parkinshair added 14:41 - Jul 9
Excellent news.

Pat on the back to Clegg and Jewell. People are quick to criticize yet they say nothing when they manage to get in a quality signing.

Stu_Magoo added 14:42 - Jul 9
Looks nothing like his picture - we are sure this is the right bloke?? Last thing we need is an Ali Dia on our hands.....
