U23s Beat Charlton to Stay Top
Monday, 17th Dec 2018 15:52 by Blair Ferguson
Second-half goals from Conor McKendry and Ben Folami secured Ipswich Town’s U23s three points against their Charlton Athletic counterparts, a 2-0 victory keeping them top of the Professional Development League Two South table going into the new year.
A stunning curling strike from McKendry opened the scoring following a frantic but goalless first half of chances for both sides and Folami’s injury-time goal ensured Charlton would leave Suffolk with nothing despite dominating the closing exchanges.
Although McKendry and Folami scored the goals for Ipswich, it was Wright who kept his team in the game. The keeper got down very well to push Hackett-Fairchild’s shot across goal away from danger in the 62nd minute and produced an equally impressive save to deny Wilberforce Ocran.
The winger picked the ball up on the right following a corner and cut inside into the box before curling the ball across goal with his left-foot where it hit the underside of the bar in the far corner before bouncing in.
The striker took the ball into the area while holding off his man and eventually struck the ball into the goal as he fell backwards to seal the three points.

The Long and Winding Decline by ElephantintheRoom
The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.

Marcus Evans Needs Our Support Not to Be Hounded Out by FrimleyBlue
I started a thread on the TWTD Forum a few weeks ago about why I felt sorry for our owner. It was an interesting thread, a few agreed but there was a majority who continued the recent craze of ' Evans needs to go'.
