Sears Set to Stay With Town Until 2020
Thursday, 13th Dec 2018 18:24
Town have taken up an option to extend striker Freddie Sears’s contract until the summer of 2020. The 29-year-old’s deal was due to be up at the end of June next year.
Sears has been one of the successes of new boss Paul Lambert’s time in charge of the Blues, netting four goals in the new manager’s first four games.
Speaking about Sears earlier today, Lambert said: “I think he’s been brilliant, Freddie Sears, I really do.
"I think the way he plays the game and with his understanding of what we’re asking him to do, what he wants to perform, he’s been excellent since we’ve come in.
“I never really realised he was as good as he is, but his performances have been second to none.”
Sears, who said earlier in the week he is in the best form of his Town career, joined the Blues from Colchester United for £200,000 in January 2015.
The Hornchurch-born striker or wideman has scored 28 goals in 119 starts and 46 sub appearances.

There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
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.
