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.”

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.

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.
