Town youngster reveals on Twitter that he is not getting a new contract

Billy Clark is the latest Ipswich Town youngster not to be offered a new contract by manager Paul Jewell.

The midfielder, who made three appearances from the bench under Roy Keane last season, revealed the outcome of his contract talks on Twitter.

Although nothing official has yet been released from the club, last night Clark tweeted: “Being told your (sic) not getting offered a new contract is not fun”.

The 19-year-old, who made his first team debut as a substitute against Doncaster Rovers last April, is the fourth youngster to be released by Jewell after Ian McLoughlin, Rory McKeown and Josh Meekings were also given the dreaded news.

Clark had earlier described the contract situation as “nervous times” and tweeted that his performance in the reserves’ match against Watford last week as the “worst game I’ve played in a long time”.
