Town Confirm Morris Loan to Forest Green Rovers
Friday, 31st Aug 2018 18:20
Town have confirmed that striker Ben Morris has joined League Two Forest Green Rovers on a season-long loan.
The Blues are able to cut the loan short in January if the England U19 international is required at Portman Road.
Forest Green manager Mark Cooper told their official website: “Ben’s an exciting, young centre-forward - Ipswich have got high hopes for him.
“I don’t think you can ever say anyone’s a replacement for Christian [Doidge, who has joined Bolton] but I think he’s one that our fans will enjoy watching.
“He’s a real workhorse, he can get hold of the ball, he can run the channels and he can score goals, so I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
The 19-year-old has made one senior start and four sub appearances for the Blues but looked unlikely to play too much part in the season ahead and had been expected to move out on loan.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
