The pre-season schedules for Ipswich Town’s Under 23 and Under 18 sides have been confirmed.
Gerard Nash and Chris Hogg's Under 23 team, who won the Professional Development League 2 South title before losing to Birmingham in the play-off's last season, will play a trio of games in the lead-up to their season beginning.
In addition to the previously announced visit to Coggeshall, the young Blues will also visit Sudbury (July 20) before a game at Lowestoft on July 24.
The Under 18s, managed by Adem Atay, will play five matches prior to the start of the new campaign.
Their schedule includes a mixture of games against local sides, with visits to Leiston and Felixstowe & Walton United, as well as a home game against Brighton at Playford Road and a visit to Reading.
The stand-out fixture, though, is a visit to Premier League side Tottenham on Saturday, July 27.
Paul Lambert's first team's pre-season programme is nearly complete, with the only further announcement being full details of a tournament due to be played in Germany on July 14.
