Play-Offs-Bound U23s Win at Crewe
Monday, 3rd May 2021 16:05
Town’s play-offs-bound U23s completed their Professional Development League Two South fixtures with a comfortable 2-0 victory at Crewe Alexandra with Matt Ward scoring the first and the second an own goal.
Ward (pictured), who agreed a pro deal at Portman Road in March, put the Blues in front in the 23rd minute with one of the Railwaymen inadvertently adding the second two minutes before the break.
The U23s, who are coached by Kieron Dyer and Terry Butcher, might have won more comfortably with the Alex twice clearing off the line.
The Town youngsters had already clinched second in the table and will face Sheffield United, the winners of the North division, at Bramall Lane in their play-off semi-final.
Town’s U18s, who secured a place in the FA Youth Cup semi-finals by beating the Blades on Friday, will play Wigan away in their Professional Development League Two play-off semi-final, also having finished second in their division.
U23s: White, Andoh, Stewart, Clements, Crane, Healy, Page, Chirewa (Cutbush), Ward, Simpson (Bello), Oppong. Subs: Ridd.

The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
