Ipswich Town midfielder Andre Dozzell says he's targeting a regular starting role in the first team next season after signing his first professional contract with the club.

Dozzell agreed the deal on his 17th birthday yesterday - despite reported interest from the Premier League.

The teenager scored his first goal for the club against Sheffield Wednesday last month and is keen to taste more first team action at Portman Road next season.

At the start of the season my aim was to break into the first-team because I had been playing regularly for the U21s and the next step is the first-team but it was a bit crazy to score on my debut.

It’s been great to have been around the first-team lately. My dad has been there too so he can give me advice on how handle it so that’s helped.

Obviously I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made here and hopefully I can push on from here and try and get more first-team football next year. That is the target.

– Andre Dozzell, Ipswich Town

Wilson vows to become the best despite World Snooker Championship loss

Kettering's Kyren Wilson is adamant he can become the best player in the world one day - despite losing his World Snooker Championship quarter-final to Mark Selby today.

The 24-year-old hit a 143 break at the Crucible - the highest of the tournament so far.

World number one Selby went on to win the match 13-8, but Wilson was proud of his efforts regardless.

I'll win this event in the future, without a doubt.

I completely believe in myself, this hasn't dampened my confidence. I'll go away from here, I'll have a little bit of a rest with my family and friends and I'll be back working very, very hard to make sure next season's even better than this one.

Northampton Borough Council have confirmed they've applied for a temporary injunction to stop the wife of former Northampton Town chairman David Cardoza selling her house.

They say they've taken the action as part of their investigation into what happened to a £10.25 million loan they leant to the Cobblers for the building of their new East Stand when Mr Cardoza was in charge.

A hearing is due to take place in Birmingham tomorrow morning.

The Borough Council applied for an interim injunction to prevent the sale of Christina Cardoza’s house. Christina, Anthony and David Cardoza, have been named in the proceedings.

We have taken this action against the Cardozas as part of our pursuit of the £10.25million loan made by Northampton Borough Council to Northampton Town Football Club, of which David and Anthony Cardoza were directors.

The Borough Council took on the right to pursue the debt from the Football Club under the memorandum of understanding signed with the Club’s new owners and we have made it clear that we do intend to take the action needed both to find out what happened and to recover the public money that has not been repaid.
