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"

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
From Despair to Where? by BlueBadger
Some thoughts, in the wake of another gutless, soulless defeat. This time at the hands of Leeds.
