Woolfenden and Emmanuel Make Debuts for Loan Clubs
Saturday, 8th Sep 2018 17:38
Luke Woolfenden and Josh Emmanuel were the only starters among Town’s seven loanees this afternoon, the pair making their debuts for loan clubs Swindon and Shrewsbury respectively.
Central defender Woolfenden, 19, played the full 90 minutes as the Robins beat Morecambe 1-0 away in League Two despite having been reduced to 10 men after only 35 minutes. The red card led to the academy product switching from centre-half to right-back.
Emmanuel, 21, also played the full game for the Shrews at right-back as they drew 1-1 at Portsmouth in League One.
Centre-half Chris Smith was the only other Town loan player to make it on to the field, the 20-year-old coming on as a half-time sub as Aldershot beat Bromley 3-2 in the Vanarama National League at the Recreation Ground, adding to his two previous starts and one sub appearance.
Striker Ben Morris was an unused sub as Forest Green Rovers drew 1-1 at home to Port Vale in League Two. The 19-year-old made his debut for his loan club as a starter in Tuesday’s 4-0 Checkatrade Trophy victory over Cheltenham Town.
Defender Pat Webber, 19, was an unused sub as Braintree were beaten 1-0 at home by Wrexham in the National League, while striker Aaron Drinan, 20, was also left on the bench as Sutton United won 1-0 away against Airdrie in the Irn-Bru Cup.
Eighteen-year-old midfielder Tristan Nydam’s loan side St Johnstone weren’t in Scottish Premiership action this afternoon.

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.
