Lawrence Training at Colchester
Wednesday, 20th Aug 2014 11:03
Midfielder Byron Lawrence is training with Colchester United and is set to feature for their U21s at Sheffield United this afternoon.
Lawrence, 18, broke through into Town the first-team squad as a 15-year-old when he was an unused sub in the 2-1 Carling Cup defeat to Northampton in August 2011.
He made his Town debut as a sub on the final day of the 2011/12 season in the 3-2 victory at Doncaster but is yet to add to that senior appearance.
The midfielder, who is contracted until the end of the season, is currently some distance from the first team with younger players such as Teddy Bishop having moved ahead of him in the pecking order.
Lawrence, who joined the Blues from Histon as a schoolboy, is also expected to play for the U’s U21s against Crystal Palace next week.

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
