Cornell Leaves By Mutual Consent
Friday, 11th Jun 2021 16:18
Keeper David Cornell has left the club with his contract having been terminated by mutial consent.
A statement on the club site reads: “The keeper was informed that opportunities at Portman Road next season would likely have been limited, and as such he has decided to pursue other options.”
The 30-year-old, who had another year remaining on his contract, joined the Blues on a free transfer last summer after leaving Northampton. The Welshman went on to make 10 League One starts as well as five games in cups.
We understand Town’s other senior keeper Tomas Holy has also been told he can move on this summer with the Blues on the lookout for two new glovesmen.

It's a harsh world at this level. Good luck!

Didnt rate him but I thought we were told no contracts being paid off. There is no way Cornell has left without some sort of pay-off. That eats into wage cap. He was outstanding at a lower level but he was the Clive baker to holy’s craig forest.

Think he done ok to be fair,when your a keeper you have to play them every week to get used to the players in front of him.yes he made a mistake or too but overall done well when called up.to much chop change for both keepers last season in my opinion.hope he does well on his next journey.

Less upset about this one, bit sad about Holy. He loved the club in the short time he was here, and it does seem that he has been pretty much told to go and find another club. Wouldn't be surprised if that was mutual consent too. Odd to be asked to be the face of the new Keeper jersey and at the same time asking you to find another club.

Assuming the timing indicates we have secured the replacement.
As excited as I am about players coming in, the whole “you can all leave” still has me a little worried. 😬

Monkeyblue. It wont eat into the wage bill at all. It's a pay off, not wages. No different than if u were to be made redundant. The redundancy money does not come out of the companies wage budget.

Bradleyblue89. Dont know why ur sad about Holy. While Cornell isnt the best keeper around, hes still better than Holy.

Didn't really convince me, but I wish him well. Agree with BradleyBlue that it will be a pity if Holy leaves, as he did seem to be a very decent guy with an attachment to the club. But there is clearly no room for sentiment in the new ITFC.

Agree with blues1 on this Cornell’s the better keeper for me saying that I don’t think either are brilliant so not too bothered however wish him well for the future.

At least we have Football Men who are keen on running this Club now, and not afraid to be interviewed ??? Good Days ahead !!! Bye Bye Marcus.

Meh. Average L1 GK who was marginally better than Holy. Won't be missed I'm sure.

It matters not which one is the better keeper the fact is that they were just never good enough, I never really trusted either and I also think that what ever our line up of defence was in front of them they had very little trust in either too! They both proved able to make cracking saves at times but nowhere near often enough and most other aspects of the two's game were lacking, I know we are still in league one but with the new owners who are willing to spend the cash as compared to M.E who just wouldn't spend more than to keep the club afloat over the last 6 years or so there is no reason at all to be happy with mediocre players especially when it comes to goalkeepers! If I had to keep one it would be Holy just for his passion and the fact that he has youth on his side but we don't have to keep either so here's looking forward to a pair of much better quality of keepers coming in and thank you to Holy and Cornell for their service, good luck wherever you end up lads.

Total ‘car wreck ‘ then ? No prisoners ,no chance for redemption / argument — just GO !
I do hope PC can and will recruit even better players ,and compose a viable ,committed and confident unit from day ONE .

Not at all surprised. Good luck to the lad though.

"Marcus" mutual consent is club speak for there's a taxi at the gate!!

Therein61 - think he was pointing out the typo

Not sure if it really matters who is the best GK at Portman Road right now? In my opinion they both qualify for 1st and 2nd worst we’ve seen in our first team squad. I’m sure they’re both nice guys and I wish them well but I think we need better if we’re looking to return to the championship.

All the best for his future. Lets get some quaility in.
|Dog added 19:50 - Jun 11|
Matteo sereni is the worst i have seen.
Andy Marshall 2nd for obvious reasons.
|Dog added 19:51 - Jun 11|
Wonder if the new owners know we are still owed a friendly with Lazio.
Perhaps next season??
