Town player is the victim of Twitter hoax
NEW Ipswich Town star Mark Kennedy has fallen victim to an internet hoaxer, the club has said.
Comments apparently from him appeared on the micro-blogging site Twitter – and led to questions being asked by Town bosses.
However, it turned out that the experienced defender is innocent – the Twitter account had been opened by someone trying to make life tough for the new signing.
The account opened in May with comments about his final matches for Cardiff City in the Championship play-offs.
It continued during the summer and at the time of his signing for Ipswich Town.

A spokesman for the club said Kennedy had been asked about the site as soon as bosses had heard about the contract comment.
He said: “When we talked to Mark it became clear he knew nothing about this site at all. He doesn’t have anything to do with it. So far as we are concerned it is the end of the matter.”
The site has references to Ipswich Buses and also to the fact that apparently Cardiff City players have a fondness for Monster Munch snacks.
The site has attracted more than 200 followers since the weekend.
The club spokesman said: “We had a chat with Mark when we first heard about this, but he is clearly the innocent party in all this.”
