Hammond to Be Released
Friday, 4th Mar 2016 13:52
Town boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed that right-back or midfielder Kyle Hammond will be released at the end of the season. As previously reported, a number of clubs, including Colchester United, are keen on the 20-year-old Blues academy product, whose one-year deal is up in the summer.
“Kyle is being released,” McCarthy said. “There’s been a bit of interest. He’s just waiting to see and keeping his powder dry to see what he wants to do.
“Kyle will be moving on, I wish him well. He had a really bad injury, his cruciate, if memory serves me right.
“It’s been difficult for him because there have been players in front of him. I wish him well, I hope he gets something else.”
Hammond was on the bench for Town during the FA Cup replay at Portsmouth recently but is still to make his senior debut and hasn’t been in a Championship matchday 18 this season.
The ex-Westbourne High School pupil was handed a one-year deal last summer after spending much of the previous two seasons out with knee injuries.
In terms of making further loan additions to his squad, he said: “There’s not a lot I can be looking at. I am happy with my squad and the ones that haven’t played they’ve been there all season and they deserve their chance to play.”

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.

With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
