Left-back delighted to make Town debut despite Blues finishing the season with defeat

Tyrone Mings was delighted to make his full debut, labelling his rise from non-League to the Town first-team as ‘amazing’.

The former Chippenham man played the full 90 for Blues at left-back and impressed despite Town going down 2-0 to Burnley as the season came to an end.

“I enjoyed every minute of it and the intensity was higher than any other game I’d played in,” Tyrone told the Club website.

“Obviously both teams were safe before the game, so maybe it wasn’t as intense as it may have been if we were both scrapping for our lives, but it was still great to be out there.

“I’d heard rumours earlier in the week that I might be included and surprisingly the nerves didn’t seem to kick in!

“I thought I did okay for my first game and did what was asked of me. I enjoyed playing in front of a large crowd and although the result didn’t go our way, I’m delighted on a personal level to have made my debut at the professional level.

“It’s been a strange season for me, but a great one at that. I started it playing non-League football and being a mortgage advisor and now I’ve finished it as a professional footballer with Ipswich playing in the Championship at Turf Moor.

“It’s just amazing really and now I want to push on.”
