NATHAN Ellington and Jaime Peters’ days at Ipswich Town look numbered after Paul Jewell failed to name them in the squad which will travel to Holland tomorrow for a two-game pre-season tour.

Versatile right-back Peters didn’t make a single league appearance for the Blues last season, while striker Ellington made just three starts in his debut campaign at Portman Road.

Jewell said towards the end of the campaign that it might be time that both players ‘looked to move on’.

Trialist Cheick Kourouma will also have to stay in Ipswich as the Blues continue to battle red-tape surrounding the teenager midfielder’s proposed switch, while Tommy Smith cannot take part due to his Olympic commitments with New Zealand.

The EADT understands that two other young, foreign triallists will travel. Neither of them are believed to be a goalkeeper though, meaning Arran Lee-Barrett is the squad’s only custodian.

New signing Elliott Hewitt will join the squad at their base just outside of Eindhoven, despite the fact that the young right-back is out-of-action until October following hip surgery.

Latest recruit Luke Chambers travels, as do youngsters Byron Lawrence, Jack Ainsley, Joe Whight and Ronan Murray.

The Blues face Helmond Sport on Tuesday and Den Bosch on Thursday. Both games kick-off at 6pm GMT.

SQUAD: Lee-Barrett; Edwards, Hewitt, Ainsley, Chambers, Delaney, Cresswell, Whight; Emmanuel-Thomas, Carson, Bullard, Drury, Hyam, Stevenson, Martin, Lawrence; Chopra, Scotland, Murray.

Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert says winger Danny Rowe needs to get fitter if he is to feature more for the first team.

Sir Alf Ramsey was one of Ipswich Town and England’s greatest-ever managers. Some would say he WAS the greatest. Few reporters had the access to Sir Alf as former EADT/Ipswich Star and Green’Un editor TONY GARNETT enjoyed. Here are some of his memories

In our daily feature, we take a look at what happened on this day in Ipswich Town’s history. Today we feature wins over Leicester City and Manchester United among others.

Cole Skuse agrees that his team mate and good friend Luke Chambers has probably taken on too much responsibility as Ipswich Town captain.

Shrewsbury Town chief executive Brian Caldwell has ruled out Paul Hurst returning to the club following his recent sacking by Ipswich Town.

More than 500 tickets have been donated for Ipswich Town’s home game against West Brom next Friday evening after one small act of kindness gained online momentum.

Toto Nsiala may currently find himself on the fringes of the Ipswich Town first-team but the central defender continues to make an impact off the field each and every week.

We’ve ranked the home kits of all 24 Championship teams. So who comes out on top?

Andre Dozzell has revealed his frustration as his return to action stalled earlier in the season but the teenager is now hungry for minutes on the field after returning to the first-team picture.

In past columns I have talked about a divide between athletes that earn large amounts of money, and those that do not, and how there is a movement in Ipswich to bring this sporting diversity together.
