New Boss Watches U18s Beat Fulham
Wednesday, 11th Jul 2018 17:17
Town's U18s continued their pre-season preparations with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Fulham at Playford Road on Wednesday in front of watching new first-team boss Paul Hurst and his assistant Chris Doig.
The visitors opened the scoring early on when Harvey Elliott hit a shot across Toby Egan which found the far bottom corner.
However, the young Blues hit back on 15 when a good run and ball across the box from Idris El Mizouni was turned into his own net by Cottagers' centre-back Connor McAvoy.
Egan did well to tip a towering header from Scott Armsworth over the bar and then at the other end, Town grabbed what proved to be the winning goal.
A fine ball from Thomas Hughes was fed through to Armando Dobra (pictured) by Kai Brown, and the diminutive attacker fired the ball into the roof of the net at the near post.
The dangerous Elliott hit the near post later on in the half and El Mizouni forced the visiting keeper into a good save but Town defended well and held on for the win, despite changing 10 of the starting XI at the interval.
U18s: Egan (Alley 46), Crowe (Ruffles 46), O'Reilly (Smith 46), Healey (Ronan 46), Henry (Ferenbach 46), Vega (Henry 69 (Clifford 80)), K Brown (Scott 46), El Mizouni (Foudil 46), Z Brown (Reed 46), Hughes (Barley 46), Dobra (Simpson 46).

Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.

My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
It's Not R*********, It's the Promise of an Adventure by BaltachaFanClub
Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
Reasons for Relegation by rickw
This week has seen several newspapers print their stories on Ipswich's demise giving their simplistic reason on what's gone wrong.
If Stats Won Games: Small Victories by Kropotkin123
If you think the Premier League is over analysed with meaningless stats by meaningless contributors, have I got a treat for you! With six games to go and a 44% chance of relegation even if we win all six, my attention has turned to more realistic, less fruitful objectives.
