Former Blue Shane Supple fondly looks back at his time at Portman Road but admits he holds no regrets about quitting the game
Former Blue Shane Supple was back at Portman Road recently and caught up with Ipswich Player to talk about his great memories at Town but also insisted that he holds no regrets at turning his back on professional football.
The Irish stopper, who left Town and football altogether in 2009, is now working as part of a sports management company back home in Dublin but was in Suffolk to catch up with a few familiar faces- including Ipswich Player- before taking in Friday’s home draw with Barnsley.
“I’m working for a sports management company back in Dublin and I’m enjoying still being involved with the game on that side of things,” Shane told us in an exclusive interview with Ipswich Player.
“I’m working with young footballers and a few other sports and I’m keeping my hand in the game still. It’s mainly looking after the players and marketing them, mixed with a bit of coaching and I’m really enjoying it and it’s great to still be involved in sport.
“I’ve got some great memories of Ipswich Town and it’s the first result I look out for on a Saturday. I’ve got nothing but fond memories and it’s great to see so many familiar faces around the Club still.
“It was a difficult decision at a young age to turn away from football but I’ve no regrets about the decision I took.
“It’s four years down the line now and although it’s gone really quickly, I think feel I made the right decision and I’m happy I stuck to that decision.
“Having said that, it’s nice to come back to Portman Road and be treated the way I am and that’s credit to the Club and shows it is still a friendly place.”
