Ipswich Town will host Dutch team Utrecht in a friendly game on Saturday, August 1.

The game will be held a week before Town begin their Championship campaign with a trip to Brentford.

Mick McCarthy’s side will also take in run outs against Shelbourne on Saturday, in Dublin, Fortuna Dusseldorf, Cambridge United, Peterborough United and Colchester United.

Meanwhile, Ipswich winger Cameron Stewart’s future at Portman Road is once again uncertain after it emerged the former Leeds man had not gone on the Blues’ pre-season trip to Ireland.

Stewart was pictured on social media yesterday with Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck, in London.

He made just two cup appearances for Town last season after signing in the summer.
