Keeper Wright Joins Brightlingsea on Loan
Friday, 11th Aug 2017 16:57
Young Town keeper Harry Wright has joined Bostik League Premier Division side Brightlingsea Regent on loan.
Wright, 18, the son of former Blues, Arsenal and England glovesman Richard, signed a new one-year deal with Town in the summer.
Regent first-team manager James Webster said: "It's great to be able to bring in the Ipswich youngster in on loan, and I'm happy to be able to help young players develop with us.
"We hope this can tie us with a healthy relationship with the Championship club and offer opportunities for players to progress their careers with Brightlingsea Regent.”
Wright will link up with the Essex side's squad ahead of tomorrow's season opener at Tooting & Mitcham United.
Teenage Regent midfielder Rob Harvey is currently with the Blues for a second trial spell and featured for the U18s as they drew 1-1 at Bromley in a friendly yesterday, Zak Brown scoring the Town goal.
Harvey also played for the U18s, who are coached by Alan Lee, in last Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Stevenage.

There is no mistaking the current signs of players, management and administrators all being all on the same page. It is particularly good to see the first-team manager acknowledging the work of the academy coaches in recent days.
Back to the Old Firm by Mullet
That "drive” Mick referred to on Saturday night, was clearly the one from north of the wall not outside his house if today’s news regarding the impending signing of Martyn Waghorn from Rangers is to be believed.
You're the Bunn for ME, Harry by Mullet
After freelance journalist Alan Nixon threw the social media space of ITFC fans into turmoil, the expectation of a striker from a Premier League club predictably sent cynics and dreamers into action.
'Gay Footballers? No, the Fans Wouldn't Have It' by Tristan90
There has been a lot of coverage of late of the anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England in 1967 and much of it celebrates how far we have come in this country in terms of equality and acceptance.
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.
