JAY Emmanuel-Thomas scored twice as an Ipswich Town reserve side thrashed Tottenham 5-1 in a friendly at Spurs Lodge this afternoon.


Bilel Mohsni, Cormac Burke and Ronan Murray got the other goals against a Spurs side that included Scott Parker, who was playing his first game after an Achilles’ injury, and former Blues loanee Massimo Luongo.

Also in the Ipswich line-up were Scott Loach, Elliott Hewitt, Kelly Youga and Josh Carson.

Blues boss Mick McCarthy, who announced his intention to organise some reserves friendlies with the Under-21s without a game until the New Year, was among those watching the match in North London.

  • Nice one lads, and nice one Mick, getting the other lads some action and taking the time out to watch the match is good news, early days but this manager seems to be pulling all the right cords, long may it continue.
