McGavin Completes Loan Move to Ayr
Monday, 1st Feb 2021 17:32

Brett McGavin has completed his loan move to Scottish Championship side Ayr United, where he will play alongside fellow Blue Corrie Ndaba, who joined the Honest Men on a similar basis earlier in the month.

McGavin, who TWTD revealed was set to follow Ndaba to Ayr earlier this afternoon, spent time on trial at Somerset Park last January along with Aaron Drinan who joined the club on loan, while the Bury St Edmunds-based schemer returned to Suffolk.

However, Ayr manager Mark Kerr, who nearly joined the Blues as a player in 2001, revived his interest in the 21-year-old and is pleased to have taken him to Somerset Park for the remainder of the season.

”Brett is someone we know well having had him here on trial before,” Kerr told the Ayr official website.

“As soon as we realised there might be a way we could get a deal done we stepped things up and are delighted to get it over the line.

“He has a really good range of passing and is very comfortable on the ball. He has good awareness and is very much the right type that we are looking for.

“He has been in and around the Ipswich first team all season and will be an excellent addition to our squad.”

McGavin, who is contracted to Town until the summer of 2022 with the club having an option for a further season, hasn't featured for the Town first team since the 2-0 home defeat to Portsmouth in mid-December and with the likes of Flynn Downes, Teddy Bishop and Jon Nolan back from injury and Josh Harrop having been recruited on loan, seems unlikely to play much first-team football during the remaining months of the campaign.

Overall, McGavin, the son of former Colchester and Birmingham striker and one-time Town head of academy recruitment Steve, has made eight senior starts and one sub appearance for the Blues.

McGavin needs games he has shown glimpses of what he is about on the ball until it got knocked out of him by inept coaching, good luck to him Ayr have a couple of good young players in their squad.

He’s better than Dozzell IMO. More aggressive, wins tackles and can pick a pass.

Good luck Brett, this will have a massive benefit in your development. Hopefully next season you'll be our standout midfielder. You have all the attributes.

Far better at set pieces than ANYONE in the team. Got in the team , Lambert didnt like being asked about him , and now, SURPRISE ! HE is loaned out. Club is going nowhere and never will.

Not under Lambert we’re not muccletonjoe, this’ll teach him to look a half decent player when given a chance, I know people will say the loan will do him good, but for me he looked a good player in the games he played so he should be given more game time here. Also if we’re going to loan him shouldn’t we give him to a team who play at a higher level( not knocking Ayr) he could even be given to another league 1 team as that’s where we will be next season and he will be used to it more, will not make a blind bit of difference to our season this year as Lambert has well and truly fcuked it up AGAIN

Don’t get it he should be in our starting line up.

Brett should be in the first team ahead of some of the more senior players. He should a key part of the team next season after the mass clear out in the summer

This transfer window sure is a strange one. Not sure whether to laugh or cry! Usually transfer deadline days at ITFC see about as much action as Tom Adeyemi (he don't play many). This one however it's all gone a bit haywire!

Far better all round player than one pass Dozzell who offers very.

McGavin was just settling in and while there's no denying Dozzel's class, for me I though that McG offers more all round. His dead ball deiiveries are far better and his ball winning is superior.
I'm hoping Ayr games will be on TV and see how he develops
