The way things are going on the transfer front at the moment we might need these boys sooner rather than later. Don't know what's going on with the Harper transfer all gone horribly quiet. We also haven't heard from Paul Cook lately.

Glad Cameron Humphreys has got a deal we've watched him a few times now give him some time to grow also well done to Albie Armin and Ola Bello.

Waiting to hear we've packed up the Academy and U23's from Ashton in our bright new future.

Just a 24 first team squad + a development squad.

Well done lads. Does anyone know what is happening with this Harper guy? We seem to have been close to signing him for over a week now

Linkboy13 added 10:37 - Jun 17
Mjdery89 Yes it's a big worry perhaps he's having second thoughts. He's only 21 and like most people likes to socialise. Ipswich is a quiet Town compared to the bright lights of Birmingham and this might be what's putting him off. That's if he's a single guy of course.
