U18s Defeated By Sky Blues
Saturday, 10th Nov 2018 21:42 by James Ager
A young Town U18 side fell to their second consecutive league defeat as they lost 1-0 to Coventry City and were reduced to 10 men at Playford Road on Saturday afternoon.
In a fairly even first half, the closest either side came to breaking the deadlock was when Kian Ronan's half-volley from 20 yards out was parried away by keeper Tom Bilson.
Town stopper Toby Egan did well to deny Harrison Nee as the hour mark approached but on 70 he was beaten by William Bapaga who latched onto a long ball and fired into the bottom corner.
Seven minutes later French midfielder Lounes Foudil was shown a straight red card for a headbutt on Lewis White in front of referee Samuel Everitt, but the visitors defended well and the closest Town came to equalising was when Ryley Scott side-footed wide from a freekick.
Meanwhile, the U18s are in action again on Tuesday in the Suffolk Premier Cup against Walsham le Willows at Summer Road.
Town have fielded an U18s team in the competition since re-entering in 2015. Last season they exited at the quarter-final stage when they were beaten 2-1 at Leiston in the final minute.
U18s: Egan, Viral (Henderson 7), Ronan, Scott, Fehrenbach (Siziba 31), Vega, Ruffles, Baker, Reed (Curtis 55), Gibbs, Foudil. Unused: Alley, Simpson.

What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
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.
