Ipswich Town Joint Managing Director Ian Milne has explained the reasoning behind splitting with the club's charitable trust:
"With our commitment to producing homegrown talent through our Academy, we want to take a leading role in the area at grassroots level and that's why we are introducing the Advanced Coaching Programme.
"With that in mind and the Trust's decision to move into multi-sports, it's a natural progression to go our separate ways."
