Nathan Ellington scores but Ipswich Under-21s lose at Swansea

IPSWICH Town’s new Under-21s side started their season with a defeat after Nathan Ellington scored but the Blues lost 2-1 at Swansea in the Professional Development League Two South.

The striker was the only over-age player picked by Sean McCarthy and Mark Kennedy, who are overseeing the Under-21s this season.

Byron Lawrence, Joe Whight and Cormac Burke were all included in the squad as well as Cameroonian trialist Yann Songo’o, a centre-back.

Speaking of the 21-year-old today, Town assistant boss Chris Hutchings said: “He was here last week and he’s here this week.

“He’s done well, we want to see him in games. We’ll get the DVD because we haven’t got down there, but it’s something that we’re looking at.”
