U18s Beat QPR
Saturday, 23rd Feb 2019 23:05 by James Ager
A young Town U18 side recorded an impressive 1-0 victory against Queens Park Rangers at Playford Road on Saturday morning with Zak Brown netting in the first half.
With manager Adem Atay away in Spain on a coaching course, U23s assistant Chris Hogg joined his U18s counterpart Kieron Dyer in the dugout, and they named three U16s in the starting XI.
One of those, Liam Gibbs, teed Brown up for his match-winning goal in the 22nd minute. The former played the ball across the box and Brown cut in from the right-hand side and finished well with his left foot.
Both teams ended up finishing the match with ten men - Tommy Smith limped off injured with five minutes remaining with the Blues having already used all three subs, before the visitors' captain Joseph Gubbins was shown a second yellow card in stoppage time after he fouled Zanda Siziba.
U18s: Alley, Wyss, Smith, Baker (Bello 82) Fehrenbach, Henderson, Ruffles (Clifford 75), Alexander, Z Brown, Gibbs, Simpson (Siziba 68). Unused: Bort, Baggott.

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
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.
