Cresswell loving life at Town

Morale in the Ipswich Town camp is sky high.

That’s according to new boy Aaron Cresswell after the Blues ended their week-long pre-season tour of Holland.

The 21-year-old left-back was seen larking around in a laundry bin alongside team mate Jack Ainsley at the squad’s Dutch hotel earlier this week courtesy of a video posted by fellow defender Tommy Smith on social networking site twitter.

“I’ve been hanging with the younger lads and they can’t stop taking the mickey out of my Scouse accent!” said the Liverpudlian.

“They’re a great bunch of lads who have made it really easy to settle in.”

Cresswell admits his move up to the Championship with Ipswich has been a bit of a whirlwind, but says he will be doing all he can to break into the first team by the time the Blues kick-off heir season at Bristol City on August 6.

In the two pre-season games in Holland this week he has twice come on for Mark Kennedy.

“I didn’t play much in my first season at Tranmere under John Barnes,” said Cresswell. “And then the next season came, I had a good pre-season, kicked on from there and now I find myself here – it’s all happened very quickly.

“I got a few goals last year (five) from free-kicks and a few assists from set-pieces too, so hopefully I can keep that going here.

“The gaffer’s told us that no-one’s guaranteed a place and if that if we do well over pre-season we’ve got a chance of starting.”
