Keeper Marsden Extends Leiston Loan
Saturday, 7th Jan 2017 20:47
Young Town keeper Jacob Marsden has extended his loan with Ryman League Premier Division Leiston to the end of the season.
The 20-year-old, who signed a one-year deal with an option for a further season with the Blues in the summer having come through the academy, joined Leiston in September and has made 21 appearances including today's 6-0 win at Burgess Hill Town.
Leiston manager Glenn Driver told his club’s official website: "I'm pleased to have signed Jacob till the end of the season. He will gain a lot more experience playing for us and I'm sure he will continue to improve as the games come thick and fast.
“Jacob at just 20 has played more football since joining us than he has in the last three years after he suffered a serious injury and his development was cut short.
“I'm pleased to have him on board and we look forward to watching his development as we enter the second half of the season. I would also like to thank Ipswich Town for allowing us to have Jacob till the end of the season."
Meanwhile, Town's U18s lost 2-0 away against Coventry City this morning, Kyle Finn scoring both goals for the Sky Blues.

The Entertainment is Back, and So Am I by JollyJourno
First up, a confession. I didn't attend a single Ipswich Town game last season. It was the first season in about a decade that I completely sat out.

What's the Stay Away Fans' Excuse Now? An Open Letter to Certain Town Fans by MikeDove33
To my fellow Ipswich Town fans, I’ve often thought about writing an open letter to other Ipswich fans over the past 1-2 years. I always eventually went off the idea, due to the fact that the negativity it may have received from certain fans who only seem to thrive on matters of a negative nature at ITFC, would outweigh any positive outcome.
A Question of Balance by HarryfromBath
There have been a number of interesting threads on the forum in recent weeks juxtaposing our decent start this season with, well, everything we had to endure in the last campaign.
