Blanchfield Returns From Shots
Tuesday, 23rd Jan 2018 08:50
Blues youngster James Blanchfield has returned from his loan at Aldershot after suffering an ankle injury.
Southend-born midfielder Blanchfield, 20, joined the Shots a month ago and made one sub appearance for the Vanarama National League side.
"He's gone back to Ipswich. He rolled his ankle on Thursday in training," manager Gary Waddock told Get Surrey.
Waddock has also dismissed having an interest in Blues striker Ben Morris, despite Town manager Mick McCarthy having said the former England U18 international had caught his eye while watching him score twice as the U23s defeated QPR 3-0 at Playford Road last week.
"I've got enough strikers as it is,” Waddock, a former Ireland and Millwall team-mate of McCarthy’s, added. “I don't need another striker.”
Meanwhile, Blues defender George Fowler was named Aldershot’s Player of the Month for December.
Fowler, 20, has now made 18 appearances for the Hampshire side having joined them in August.

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.
