Blues appoint two new scouts

IPSWICH Town have doubled their number of full-time scouts by appointing Andy King and Mark Seagreaves.

King made his name as an attacking midfielder at Everton, where he had two spells, scoring over 50 goals for the club. He went on to play for QPR and West Brom amongst a number of clubs and was capped by England at Under-21 level.

As well as working as a scout in the game, King also managed at Mansfield and Swindon, taking both clubs to the play-offs in his eight years in the hotseat.

Seagreaves started his career along Blues boss Paul Jewell in the Liverpool youth team before going on to play for Manchester City, Bolton and Swindon. He then teamed up again with Jewell as part of his coaching set-ups at Wigan and Derby.

The duo join chief scout Steve McCall and David Hamilton as the full-time scouting staff at Portman Road.
