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.

Good luck Ben. Would of loved to have seen you given more of a chance here as think you are ready to make your mark but hopefully you'll make a name for yourself at Forest Green and use the experience to make a strong case to be given a proper chance back here after your loan.
Go and rip it up!

Very disappointed with PH. Really regretting his appointment as don't believe his signings are any better than our youth. Just hope that Folami is given a chance but doubt it will happen.
