Four More Youngsters Move Out on Loan
Friday, 10th Sep 2021 08:51
Blues youngsters Gerard Buabo, Jesse Nwabueze and Zak Bradshaw are set to join Isthmian League North Division Bury Town on loan, while Dylan Crowe (pictured) has moved to Southern League Premier Division Central Leiston on the same basis.
First-year scholar Buabo, a striker, featured in the latter stages of the U18s’ FA Youth Cup run last season despite still being at school, while second-year midfielder Nwabueze was involved with the first team in pre-season and has played for the U23s during this campaign.
Bradshaw, also a second year, can play at full-back, centre-back or as a holding midfielder.
“We are really fortunate with our relationship with Ipswich Town that it allows us to benefit from having their players come and play with us, which also benefits them,” Bury manager Ben Chenery told the Suffolk News.
“We are very excited to work with the three players. They will certainly make us a lot stronger and it will be a big lift for the current squad with the injuries we have and just add some new faces in and around the squad.”
Right-back Crowe, who spent time on loan at Huddersfield earlier in the summer, has made one senior appearance for the Blues, in the Papa John’s Trophy at Crawley last season.
Earlier in the close season, talks were ongoing regarding the mutual termination of the 20-year-old's deal, however, that ultimately didn’t come to fruition.
Crowe has won England caps at U15, U16, U17 and U18 levels and is contracted to Town until next summer.
In May 2019, the Blues were reported to have rejected a £300,000 offer from Huddersfield for Crowe, who had previously been linked with the likes of Celtic, RB Leipzig, Arsenal, Manchester United, Brighton, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Benfica.
Town now have 16 young players out on loan.

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.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
