McDonnell Red-Carded But Shots Win to Top National League
Wednesday, 29th Nov 2017 10:37
On-loan Town midfielder Adam McDonnell was shown the first red card of his professional career last night as Aldershot won 2-0 away at Bromley to climb to the top of the Vanarama National League.
The 20-year-old was shown a second yellow card for dissent in the 41st minute but the Shots, who were already a goal in front at that stage, still went on to win, adding a second after the break, while the Ravens were also reduced to 10 men in stoppage time.
Duboliner McDonnell has enjoyed a hugely successful spell with the Shots, who now lead their division on goal difference from Sutton United, and is likely to be credited with his fourth goal of his three months there, video evidence having shown that his strike during Saturday’s 2-0 home win against Wrexham crossed the line, despite initially being given to Shamir Fenelon, who followed up.
Blues defender George Fowler was also in the side which won at Bromley and against Wrexham, the 19-year-old playing the full 90 minutes on both occasions.
Meanwhile, Town academy schoolboy Ben Knight is currently with the England U16s squad at the Nike International Friendlies in Florida, where the Young Lions face the hosts later today, then Brazil and the Netherlands. The games are being shown live by US Soccer.

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.

Some thoughts, in the wake of another gutless, soulless defeat. This time at the hands of Leeds.
