New Blue Cole Skuse is already feeling settled at his new home of Portman Road and explains how TC helps keep spirits high!

Cole Skuse has admitted that it is easy to settle in at Town because there is a real ‘buzz’ about the place.

The midfielder became Mick McCarthy’s first signing of the summer after penning a three-year deal at Portman Road, after leaving Bristol City on a free transfer.

Cole joined his new teammates for the beginning of pre-season and told us that he already feels at home and has been itching to get underway with Town for some time now.

“I’m really enjoying my time here,” explained the new Blue in an interview with Ipswich Player.

“We’ve only been back a few days but I’ve been made to feel very welcome by everyone at the Club and I already feel settled. I've got myself a place and my family came up with me recently to have a look around the Club and everything seems perfect for me here.

“The lads have also been brilliant, the manager is good as gold and TC (Terry Connor) is very bubbly and lively in the mornings!

“When I came to speak to the manager in the summer I could sense the buzz around the place and you can still feel that now.

“From the moment I agreed to sign for Ipswich I’ve just been raring to go and after having a bit of an injury at the end of last season for Bristol City, I’m itching to get playing and I can’t wait to get started.

“We’ve got a trip to Ireland just round the corner with a game at the end of it and once that is here you can begin to feel the excitement of the season creeping up on you.”
