Evans: A True Honour
Saturday, 3rd Feb 2024 00:04

Departing midfielder Lee Evans says it’s been “a true honour” to play for Town and captain the club, the Wales international’s exit having been announced on Friday afternoon.

Evans and the club severed ties in order to give the 29-year-old a chance to play games with another side between now and the end of the season once he’s fully recovered from the knee operation he underwent in November.

“My time at Ipswich Town has sadly come to an end and it’s been a journey that’ll live with my forever.

“I’d like to thank everyone for their kind messages and well wishes over these past couple of hours, it’s been overwhelming.

“It’s been a great honour to play and even captain this great football club. Being able to play my part in our promotion back to the Championship last year will be something I’ll look back on with so much pride.

“I wish nothing but success for the boss, the coaching staff, everyone at the club and, of course, the boys on their pursuit of back-to-back promotions. Thanks for the memories.”

Evans joined the Blues having left Wigan in the summer of 2021 and went on to make 55 starts and six sub appearances, scoring six times, three of those in the 6-0 hammering of Doncaster Rovers early in his first season at the club.

He has been a fantastic player whenever he has been representing this club.
Sad day but best of luck to you, thanks for the good days you gave us all.

This is very disappointing for the player, club and supporters. Lee made a great contribution prior to his latest serious injury. I thought that KMcK provided a very thoughtful and kind summary of the situation and Lee's contribution. I wish Lee the very best of luck in finding a new club and hope that he is free of any further serious injury during the rest of his career....

Whilst never going to be in the “legend” bracket, like Edwards and Leigh he’ll be fondly remembered as part of the 2022/23 squad that delighted and excited us in equal measure and has ultimately enabled us to be where we are today.

Bon chance for the future!

Good luck Lee. Part of the revival of our great football Club. Remember seeing you and morsy in the middle of the park for the first time and thinking wow we finally have a midfield.

He was playing his best football before he got injured and looked every bit a championship player still has a big future in the game.

I am guessing Colchester for the rest of the season then back to championship next season ?

See you doing a Luongo and playing again for Town.

Great Town player and made a great contribution for Town to being where they are now

Not including Morsey. The best Town captain for 20 years.

Far too injury prone...good passer of the ball but we've moved up a level. Wish him all the best for the future.
