Bishop Returns as U23s Host Cardiff
Monday, 5th Nov 2018 11:04
Town’s top-of-the-table U23s face Cardiff City at Portman Road this afternoon with Teddy Bishop returning to action after his hamstring injury (KO 1pm).
In addition to the midfielder, Toto Nsiala and Barry Cotter will also be in the team.
Gerard Nash’s side will bear the name of their new sponsor, the University of Suffolk, having been without one since the end of 2016/17 when the deal with Servest ended.
The young Blues are currently unbeaten in 10 and are top of the Professional Development League Two South table by four points.
Entry to the Cobbold Stand only is £3 for adults and £1 for concessions, while season ticket holders and members will be admitted free.
Meanwhile, academy second-year scholar striker Tommy Hughes has joined Bury Town on loan.
The 18-year-old made his debut in Saturday's 2-1 Bostik League North home defeat to Aveley.
Bury manager Ben Chenery thanked the Blues for allowing the youngster to join his club.
"I would like to thank Ipswich for once again allowing us to take one of their young players on loan.
"Last season we had Jack Lankester and Brett McGavin with us and I think Ipswich saw the benefit that it gave to both players in playing competitive Isthmian League football, with Jack now making first-team appearances in the Championship this season.
"Tommy came into the side on Saturday and showed plenty of energy and did well up front for us in his first game, and hopefully it will benefit both him, us and also Ipswich.
"I would like to thank Alan Lee and the staff at the Ipswich academy for their help once again and I hope we can continue a good partnership with them"

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.
The History Boys by Tristan90
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.
