Norwood and Jackson Both Start at Cambridge
Saturday, 27th Jul 2019 12:32 by Dave Gooderham
James Norwood and Kayden Jackson will both start for Ipswich Town in this afternoon’s last pre-season friendly at Cambridge United (KO 1pm).
Alan Judge, subject of two failed bids from Championship club QPR, is on the bench for the first time this pre-season while Andre Dozzell, who has himself been linked with a move to Norwich City, also starts – although it is not yet clear whether it will be a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 formation for Town.
Tomas Holy gets the nod over Bartosz Bialkowski in goal – though manager Paul Lambert was keen to stress pre-match this wouldn’t necessarily indicate his starting line-up for Burton Albion next week – while the defence includes Luke Woolfenden partnering trialist Jon Guthrie in the centre and Bailey Clements at left-back. Fellow trialist, James Wilson, also starts on the bench.
Missing from the squad are Myles Kenlock, Jordan Roberts and Corrie Ndaba in addition to the players currently sidelined or on the way back from injury.
Cambridge’s XI includes ex-Blues winger Reggie Lambe and former Norwich stalwart Wes Hoolahan.
Cambridge: Mitov, Knoyle, Taylor, Ward, Jones, Maris, Curruthers, Hoolahan, Lambe, Trialist, Ibehre.

Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
