U23s in Action at Coggeshall
Friday, 12th Jul 2019 10:51
Town’s U23s get their pre-season programme under way when they face Coggeshall Town in the now annual friendly at their West Street home on Saturday afternoon (KO 3pm).
Coggeshall chairman Graeme Smith’s company Chelmsford Plastic Warehouse is a sponsor of the Blues’ academy.
Last summer, the Town youngsters were beaten 2-1 by the Bostik North side with Armando Dobra, who is currently with the first team in Germany, netting for the team coached by Gerard Nash (pictured) and Chris Hogg.
Pop star Olly Murs is a co-owner of the club and featured for the Seedgrowers in the 2016 friendly between the clubs.
Admission is £5 for adults and free for children with tickets available on the turnstiles.
Food and drink will be available at the game with gates opening at 1pm, while there is parking at the ground, although early arrival will be required to secure a spot.
Meanwhile, the U18s, who beat Brighton 5-0 at home earlier in the week, are in action at Reading in a behind-closed-doors game.

How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
