Cook: Burns Has Been a Target For a While
Thursday, 3rd Jun 2021 20:26
Blues boss Paul Cook says his first Town signing Wes Burns is a player he has been targeting for a while and believes fans will start to see more new recruits coming into the club from now on.
TWTD understands that the Blues out-gunned Championship Coventry City to land former Wales U21 international Burns from Fleetwood, the right-sided forward or full-back signing three-year deal earlier today after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.
“Wes has been a target of mine for a while and we are delighted to have got him here,” Cook told the club website.
“He’s a great lad, a great character and a good player. He can play in a couple of different positions and he poses an attacking threat, as our supporters saw when he scored at our place at the end of last season.
“Supporters were probably getting a bit anxious that we hadn’t signed anyone but the reality is that the recruitment of players is a process now.
“It’s great that [CEO] Mark [Ashton] is now in place at the club and working behind his desk day in, day out and I think it will be to the fore that we will start to see players coming into Ipswich Town now.”

There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues 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.
