U18s Lose as Loan Quintet Exit FA Cup
Saturday, 4th Nov 2017 21:33
Town’s U18s were beaten 3-0 by Crystal Palace at Goals Beckenham this morning, while five on-loan Blues exited the FA Cup.
Tariq Ossai, Joseph Hungbo and Francis Baptiste netted the goals for the Eagles after the Blues' U18s had had an early penalty saved. Town’s U16s lost 7-1 to the same opposition.
Elsewhere, Kieffer Moore, Josh Emmanuel, Adam McDonnell, George Fowler and Chris Smith were all in action as their loan sides were knocked out of the FA Cup at the first round proper stage.
Moore - who had a goal controversially ruled out - and Emmanuel both played the whole game as League One Rotherham were beaten 2-1 at Crewe Alexandra, while McDonnell was involved for the full 90 minutes and Fowler came on as a 69th minute sub as Vanarama National League Aldershot were thrashed 5-0 at Shrewsbury. Smith played the full 90 as National League South Chelmsford were beaten 2-0 at Gateshead.
Meanwhile, Harry Wright made his first appearance in goal for East Thurrock United as they were beaten 3-2 by Weston Super Mare in the National League South.
Fellow glovesman Nick Hayes made his second appearance for Dunstable as they were beaten 2-1 at home by Frome Town in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division.
Academy striker Declan Daniels made his debut for Leiston as the Bostik League Premier Division side lost 2-1 at Burgess Hill Town.

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.

That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.
