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.

A Crossroads by TBT
Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
