Another Town youth player also played part of the game- Luke Webster. Luke is being freed by Ipswich in the Summer, last week he played for Southend reserves against Ipswich.

  • Having spent the last two weeks on trial at Leyton Orient, Knights is now on trial with Yeovil Town

  • His trial at Leyton Orient continues. He played in the O`s friendly at Dagenham and Redbridge (Jan 30) having also played against Brentford the previous week.

  • Played in a trial match for Orient today (23 Jan 07) lost 1-0 to Brentford, also playing as a trailist was Phil Mulryne

  • Looks set to join Scottish Premier League side Falkirk on loan in January

  • Darryl was born in Ipswich. I used to go to Primary School with him at Cliff Lane and he got spotted playing for the school`s Year 5 football team and so joined Town at Under 9 level. He then joined Holywells High School for a short period before moving onto Chantry High School where he stayed until finishing school. His dad Kelvin is a good-quality SIL player, and his mum Maria were at the Sunderland game when he made his debut for Town at the age of just 16 years.
