Bramble back at Ipswich

Ipswich Town could re-sign defender Titus Bramble 11 years after he first left the club, after taking the former Sunderland defender on trial.

Bramble appeared in a friendly for the Tractor Boys ion Tuesday night against Gillingham.

I only met up with Titus for the first time at our pre-match meal. He asked if he could come in for training and wanted to play.

He's obviously interested in coming here and we are interested in him otherwise he wouldn't be playing for us. He showed a good commitment to come and play but it's early days yet. No more than that.

– Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy speaking to the club's official website

Skint fan gets ticket from Ipswich player

An Ipswich fan who could not afford a ticket to the game against Bolton on Saturday got an unexpected but very welcome pair of tickets after he tweeted one of the ITFC players.

Before the game Tris Monk from Haverhill tweeted a good luck message to Ipswich's Tyrone Mings, in which he mentioned that he could not afford to go to the game.

Not long afterwards Mings tweeted Tris back asking if he could get to Portman Road, and said that there would be two tickets for the match waiting at the stadium.

Ipswich part company with Jason Scotland

Ipswich have parted company with striker Jason Scotland by mutual consent.

The 33-year-old penned a new one-year deal last summer under then-boss Paul Jewell but has only featured once off the bench since the appointment of Mick McCarthy in early November.

Scotland will now look to gain regular first-team football elsewhere.

McCarthy told Town's official website, www.itfc.co.uk: "Jason is a fantastic guy and has been great around the training ground but we are going younger and he's been missing out.

"He understands that and wants to go out and play football at the twilight of his career. We wish him well."

Scotland joined Ipswich from Wigan in 2010 and enjoyed close to 100 appearances in total, scoring 21 goals.

McCarthy: New strikers will boost competition

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says bringing in new forwards will increase competition for places.

The Portman Road manager says the moves were designed to get strikers to fight for their places, saying insecurity makes people work harder.
