A Bury St Edmunds company has been unveiled as the new sponsors of Ipswich Town FC Under 23s.

Technical education company CNet Training has agreed a year deal that will see their name on the U23s shirts as well as becoming Ipswich Town Academy partners until the summer of 2022.

Rosie Richardson, the club's director of sales, said: "We are delighted to be working with CNet Training over the next three years.

"Not only will they feature on the front of the U23s' team shirts, CNet will have branding located around the stadium and will also feature on the Club's Honesty Flags, a new initiative where we will supply children in the Family Enclosure with flags to wave to support the team at home games."

Andrew Stevens, chief executive of CNet, added: "CNet Training has a long association with local football and this is an extension to our commitment to supporting the game.

"We enjoy being involved with the club and the academy, they really do support their players as they progress and blossom into future stars. "But, this is not just about company branding for CNet, we are keen to give back to the community so we're scoping plans to work closer with the academy to allow players to also learn about the digital infrastructure sector and further expand their skills into network cable installation, a sector that has many career opportunities and a skills shortage.

"With more new knowledge and skills under an Academy scholar's belt, it will allow them more choices for their future career as and when they may need it."
