McGavin Set to Join King's Lynn on Loan
Thursday, 26th Aug 2021 11:44
Outcast midfielder Brett McGavin has reportedly agreed to join Vanarama National League King's Lynn Town on loan.
The 21-year-old was among those told he could move on at the end of last season and has been training with the U23s since the start of pre-season, although along with Myles Kenlock without featuring in their matches.
Now, according to Suffolk News, the Bury St Edmunds-based schemer is to join the Linnets on a long-term loan spell to in order to get senior game-time with confirmation of the move expected today.
McGavin, the son of former Blues youth player and head of academy recruitment Steve, has made 10 senior starts and one sub appearance for Town having come through the academy.
Contracted to Town until the summer of 2022 with the club having an option for a further year, McGavin spent a brief spell on loan in Scotland with Ayr United last season making one sub appearance having previously had a stint on loan at Concord Rangers.

Good news. Clearly being here when the transfer window closes would be terrible for him if he won't be playing any matches, but he played well during his few appearances last year so I would prefer for him to be sent out on loan and re-evaluated on his return than just released.

Will be a brilliant signing for Kings Lynn.

There is definitely a quality player in there. He always looks so comfortable on the ball, his pass success rate is excellent, he is a very good at taking set pieces, free-kicks & corners. Unfortunately pace is not part of his armour....and that is one of PCook main criteria. I would have thought a L2 loan would have been preferable level to give the game time.

Midfield schemer or dreamer? (Sorry, Phil...)

Just Kenlock to go then by the look of things.

Treated unfairly imo. Wasn't part of the horror shows last season and told to train with U23s when he came back.

Dosent look like the lad hasn't got a future at Ipswich which is a shame because he's a good kid. Did ok in his rare appearances for the first team. But the fact no EFL team's came in for him sums things up really. Hope he does well at Kings Lynn and attracts attention from league two clubs.

Can't understand why no one has moved for Myles Kenlock either permanently or on loan. He may not be another Cresswell or Mings but I always regarded him as a steady, reliable wing back

Never given a chance by PC, and suspect others such as Humphreys are ahead of him in the pecking order this season, so hope this move works out well for him.

A decent player and never let us down when he stepped in. Kenlock, too, had some good games for us, as well as some perhaps not so good, but in performances where he was hardly alone in that. Always tried hard. I'm sorry they have to leave (am assuming that to be the case), and I wish them both well.

The Ayr move didn't go well for him as he couldn't force his way into the team there.
There are still many footballers (Emyr Huw as an example) out there who are struggling to get fixed up. Whilst I wouldn't expect him to command very big wages the demand for players like him at his age with little first team experience is very limited. El Mizouni is probably ahead of him and I have to say Cameron Humphreys looks like he could overtake him.
For some footballers an element of luck is required to succeed so this not necessarily down to the lad that he has failed to make the right impression now being compared to a vastly more experienced and upgrades squad. Life is not always fair, but sometimes you have to step back to step forward and hopefully Kings Lynn will give him that opportunity and act as a stepping stone to moving forward again if not at Ipswich then somewhere else.

Shame what has happened re our academy lads moving on in great numbers and it seems that a local part of the club has somewhat died. Perhaps it will be the price of, hopefully, success.

Really feel for Emry Huws who's injury problems are stopping him from getting a league club.
