Community trust funding and sponsorship manager Carolyn Shaw said: “This is a brand new partnership for Ipswich Town Community Trust and we are delighted to be involved with Havebury. The football training will be a highly motivational programme for young people, encouraging healthy activity and raising achievement, which is what the community trust is about and what we work to promote.”

James Cocksedge, a member of Havebury's Youth Forum which has helped to set up the initiative, says: “Some young people say there's nothing to do and I think this opportunity is a brilliant chance for them to get involved. The forum is really please to be involved with such a high-profile football club as Ipswich Town.”
