A good idea, hopefully he will get valuable first team experience.

After all, he’s hardly likely to get into our first team any time soon when we have superstars like Chambers ahead of him.

Sorry, Ipswichbusiness - accidentally downvoted you.

I agree, a good move. There's no substitute for senior football, no matter if you have to drop a few levels to get it.

I can see him being part of our defence next season

Good level for him to learn he will get knocked about a bit and test his composure and with hope he will return ready to push for a squad number next season.

Hopefully he'll be pulling up trees up there, and will come back First Team ready

Interesting to see Chris Smith there.
Some high hopes for him at one stage.

Along with Corrie Ndaba we now have a couple of promising youngsters to compete with Wilson and Nsiala, assuming PC rates them. I suspect that Baggott might be given a loan somewhere for most of next season but overall the cb position is looking quite good. No doubt PC will also have someone else who is experienced to bring in.
It might be worth thinking about Hawkins in a cb position given his experience there previously.......

Difficult move for the lad playing for the best team in Narfolk. If he does well the budgies might snap him up.
