Woolfenden Recalled From Bromley Loan
Friday, 27th Apr 2018 11:54
Town have recalled defender Luke Woolfenden from his loan spell with Vanarama National League side Bromley.
The 19-year-old will go straight into the squad for the trip to Reading tomorrow with the Blues short of right-sided defenders. Dominic Iorfa is out for the season with a groin problem, while Barry Cotter has also been struggling for fitness.
Woolfenden has made 17 starts and three sub appearances for the Ravens having joined them just before Christmas, but will now miss out on playing in next month’s FA Trophy final against Brackley at Wembley.
Bromley boss Neil Smith paid tribute to Woolfenden: “Luke has been brilliant since he came in, for such a young lad.
"He’s played a massive part in getting us to Wembley and to be called back to Ipswich’s first team is a big achievement in respect of his hard work with us.
"Luke will always be remembered and welcome here and we look forward to seeing his career prosper.”
The academy product, who plays at right-back or centre-half, has made two appearances for the Blues, as a sub at Luton in the Carabao Cup in August before starting in the next round at Crystal Palace.

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.

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.
