Folami Hits 60-Yard Stunner as U23s Win at QPR
Friday, 20th Oct 2017 16:49
Monty Patterson scored the first and Ben Folami a brilliant 60-yard second as Town’s U23s beat leaders QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road this afternoon.
New Zealand international Patterson gave Gerard Nash’s side the lead in the 37th minute, then on 63 Australian frontman Folami beat QPR keeper Seny Dieng with remarkable effort from several yards inside his own half. Aramide Oteh pulled one back for the home side in the closing moments.
The result means the young Blues go second, now two points behind the West Londoners, with previously second-placed Coventry City not in action until Monday.
U23s: M Crowe, D Crowe, Clements, McLoughlin, Woolfenden, Webber, McKendry, Dobra, Folami, Morris, Patterson. Subs: Marshall, Hayes, Foudil, Daniels.

An Uncomfortable Truth by TBT
The Marcus Evans group of companies numbers over 30 different organisations and having a lame duck subsidiary running at a loss has its merits in terms of taxation.
This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not! by delias_cheesy_flaps
“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
Identity Crisis by andygri
As someone born in the mid 1970s, I am part of the generation that has seen Ipswich Town Football Club move in and out of the footballing limelight over the last 40 years.
Pre-Derby Hope and Hype by TimS
I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.
Is the Season Done And Dusted For Ipswich Town? by Pessimistic
That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.
