Football Academy’s U21’s Impress at Ipswich Town FC
Tresham’s Football Academy Players have been invited back to play in a behind closed doors game at Ipswich Town FC on Tuesday following a positive couple of days over February half term.
Four U21 Academy players trained at Ipswich Town FC and impressed the staff to be invited back to return and play in a behind closed doors game on Tuesday 19th February.
Ipswich Town U21 coach and former Republic of Ireland International Mark Kennedy, has invited the Tresham footballers to play in the game in order to see how they perform in an arranged match.
The boys met first team manager Mick McCarthy and 1st team coach Terry Connor early on Thursday morning before meeting the playing squad at the Football League Championship, Ipswich Town FC.
Tresham Academy Manager, Jonathan Heathcote, who is also a Senior Scout for Ipswich’s 1st team, said:
“It’s a real credit to the players that they made such a positive impression in such a short period of time. They conducted themselves extremely well and were a credit to us all at the college. Having got the taste for the professional game I get the impression that the lads really appreciate the chance the club is giving them and are determined to learn everything they can from this experience.”
Kennedy, who played alongside the likes of Roy Keane at International level and represented clubs including Liverpool, Manchester City, Wolves, Cardiff City and Ipswich, was pleased to be able to help the players and give them feedback on their game.
