U23s Beaten at Burnley
Monday, 16th Sep 2019 15:16
Sub Ryley Scott netted late on but Town’s U23s were beaten 3-1 by Burnley at Curzon Ashton’s Tameside Stadium, their fifth defeat in their first five Professional Development League Two South games this season.
Ali Koiki netted a hat-trick for the Clarets, the first two from the penalty spot on 26 and 54 after fouls by Toto Nsiala, who was playing his second U23s game after his hamstring injury, and keeper Adam Przybek.
Koiki completed his treble on the hour from a rebound, before midfielder Scott pulled one back in the 89th minute.
Also in the Town side was Ben Folami, who was involved in his second match having been out of action since January with an achilles injury.
The result means the young Blues remain bottom of the league table they finished top of last season.
Meanwhile, what’s likely to largely be an U18s team will be in action on Tuesday evening when they face Needham Market in the first round of the Suffolk Premier Cup at Bloomfields (KO 7.45pm). The winners of the tie will take on Haverhill Rovers away in round two.
U23s: Przybek, Cotter, Nsiala, Ndaba, Clements, McGavin, Simpson, Dobra (Foudil 60), El Mizouni, Folami, Roberts (Scott 68). Unused: Crowe, Egan, K Brown.

History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
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).
