Josh Carson told to show his worth in training

JOSH Carson must perform in training everyday if he is to force his way back into the Ipswich Town team.

Those are the thoughts of assistant manager Chris Hutchings as uncertainty continues to surround the future of the club’s teenage winger.

The Northern Ireland international is out of contract this summer and, although he has been offered a new three-year deal, may have doubts over signing after being left out of the squad altogether for Town’s last four games.

“I know the gaffer (Paul Jewell) is in talks with Josh and his agent,” said Hutchings,

“It is up to Josh to get in the team first. He is the one that needs to do the talking and the only way he does that is on the pitch.

“He has done very well, he is an international, but he is on the periphery at the moment.

“He is one for the future and, if he does well, he will get rewarded. Aaron Cresswell is a prime example of that.
