Emmanuel: Great to Be Back in Town Team
Wednesday, 13th Mar 2019 19:39
Right-back Josh Emmanuel was delighted to be back in a Town shirt for the first time since May 2017 during last night’s 1-1 draw at Bristol City.
The 21-year-old, who started against the Robins, has spent time on loan at Rotherham and Shrewsbury since he previously played for Town on the final day of the 2016/17 campaign at Nottingham Forest.
“I took all the positives out of my time out on loan but it’s great being back here and being involved with the team,” Emmanuel told the club site.
“When I am needed, I am ready. I want to be involved. I want to be playing games. I have to just keep working hard and when my chance comes, like it did last night, I’ve got to take it."
Academy product Emmanuel is out of contract in the summer but with the club having an option to keep him for an additional year.
“God willing we will stay up and then we will see what happens after that,” the one-time West Ham United schoolboy added.
“I do want to play games regularly and I want to do that here. I’m an Ipswich player. I’m not focusing too much on the future at the moment. I know it’s there but it can wait for now.”

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.
