U18s Thrashed By Colchester
Friday, 2nd Feb 2018 14:22 by Blair Ferguson
Town’s U18s suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of local rivals Colchester United, despite taking a first-half lead through Albert Wilton at a wet and windy Playford Road this morning.
The game started well for the young Blues, who were looking to bounce back from Tuesday's FA Youth Cup defeat to Blackpool, when Wilton headed in from a corner early in the first half, but two quick goals from Dean Ager and Callum Anderson had the visitors in front before Noah Chilvers got a third from a freekick just before the break.
The second 45 minutes got off to a bad start with Chilvers smashing in his second and Colchester’s fourth of the afternoon with Ollie Kensdale adding the fifth from a corner just after the half-hour mark to finish the scoring.
In a game that produced plenty of chances it was the visitors who had the first opportunity. Ager collected the ball on the right wing following a corner and sent the ball across the box, with Kensdale’s glancing header taking it wide of the left post.
Thomas Hughes put two hands in the air to signal a routine before placing the ball perfectly in to the near post for Wilton to head past Callum Coulter.

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.
