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.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.

Ipswich Town fan and football reporter WILL RIDGARD gives his view on the controversy surrounding the increase in season ticket prices at Portman Road...
