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.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
