U18s Thrash Colchester
Saturday, 1st Dec 2018 16:44
Town’s U18s returned to winning form by thrashing Colchester United 6-3 at Playford Road this morning.
The young Blues, without a win in their previous two games, went in front via trialist Ross Crane, a former U’s youngster, in the sixth minute, Armando Dobra (pictured) netted the second from the spot on 27 and Idris El Mizouni added the third in the 35th minute to make it 3-0 at the break.
Dobra scored his second of the game 11 minutes into the second half, Tommy Hughes scored the fifth on 61 and Bailey Clements Town’s sixth 16 minutes from time with the U’s also grabbing three in the second period.
The U18s are in action at Portman Road on Tuesday when they face non-league Andover Town’s youngsters in the third round of the FA Youth Cup (KO 7pm).
U18s: Egan, Ronan, Clements, Vega, T Smith, Crane, Scott, El Mizouni (Healey 46), Dobra (Henderson 57), K Brown (O’Reilly 46), Hughes. Unused: Alley, Simpson.

I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
