Lankester Signs First Pro Deal
Friday, 17th Aug 2018 15:45

Blues youngster Jack Lankester has signed his first professional contract, a deal to the summer of 2020.

The 18-year-old striker, who is from Bury St Edmunds, joined the academy as an U7 and was a regular in the U23s last season.

Lankester, who spent a spell on loan with Bury Town earlier this year, was involved with the first team in pre-season, coming on as a sub in the friendlies against the MK Dons and West Ham.

Good luck as a future ITFC first-team player. Hurst had good words to say about this lad if I remember correctly.

Well done and good luck Jack.

I don't remember seeing anything from the Club regarding the retained list (and contract offers) for the 2017/18 second year academy boys, of which Lankester was one.

We know Nydam and Folami have signed pro-deals from this age group, but what about the others (Cahill, McGavin, Marshall, Ndaba, Ware and Wilton)?

CONGRATS JACK!!! Played golf against this guy about a month ago in a county match, a really really decent golfer as well! So happy for him!after speaking to a few people on that day it sounds like he has been a great player for us the last couple of seasons in the under 18s and reserves! Scoring goals for fun!!

Young players don't get a chance at Ipswich Town any more, not with the last 4 managers, so this is a waste of his time.

Good news. Like this lad a lot. Saw him for the U23 v Lowestoft. He was the best player on the park and created the first goal. Was the reason PH attended the game. Best of luck Jack.
