Alabi on Target But U21s Lose at Birmingham
Monday, 14th Sep 2015 15:29
Town’s U21s lost 3-1 at Birmingham City this afternoon, striker James Alabi having put the Blues in front in the 31st minute.
The home side hit back after the break with Alex Jones netting on 62, Reece Brown four minutes later and Jones again on 79.
The Town side included Kevin Bru and Teddy Bishop, who are on their way back from their hamstring injuries, and recent signing Tommy Oar.
Speaking at lunchtime, manager Mick McCarthy expected the trio to be involved with the senior side facing Birmingham on Friday and in the Capital One Cup tie at Old Trafford next Wednesday.
“Into the squad [for Friday] and certainly for the cup tie at Manchester United. That’s probably worthwhile them getting fit for that one, isn’t it?”
Starting in goal was first-year scholar Harry Wright, much to his father Richard's delight.
U21s: Wright, Fowler, Kenlock, McDonnell, Woolfenden, Robinson (c), Connolly, Bru, Alabi, Bishop, Oar. Subs: Hayes, Dozzell, Ramadan.

They say you learn more from failure than success. Whatever the case, surely you learn more from either than by doing nothing at all.

If you’re old enough to remember where this saying came from, you can probably remember Town playing in the third tier!
Rise and Fall by NormEmerges
Like my father, I was born and bred in Suffolk. He was a lifetime Ipswich Town supporter. But when I was a boy, back in the 1950s, like many small boys I followed clubs at the top of the old First Division.
Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.
The History Boys by Tristan90
My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
