Wednesday, 9th Jun 2021 19:08
Young defender Bailey Clements has signed a new one-year deal, along with Fraser Alexander, Antoni Bort, Harley Curtis, Alfie Cutbush and Brooklyn Kabongolo, who all completed their academy scholarships in 2020/21.
TWTD reported last week that Clements, who spent time on loan at Dagenham & Redbridge before Christmas, had been offered the chance to stay at Portman Road for a further season and that midfielder Cutbush had signed a one-year deal. All the contracts include a club option for a further year.
Left-back or centre-half Clements, 20, came through the academy and played his only first-team game in the Carabao Cup tie at Luton in August 2019.
Midfielder Alexander skippered the U18s during their FA Youth Cup campaign which took them to the semi-finals with keeper Bort striker Curtis, who was interesting Fulham and West Ham earlier in the season, midfielder Cutbush and centre-half Kabongolo also featuring during the run.

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?
