Goalscorer Marriott eager for chance as he looks to improve his all-round game

Jack Marriott is itching to get his chance in the first-team after paying tribute to his fellow strikers for the progress he has made over the past year. 

The 19-year-old, who made his debut for the Club in the 2-0 defeat at Burnley in the final game of last season, has been a regular in the squad this season and has been on the bench for the last few games. 

“The gaffer and TC seem to be pleased with me so that’s good,” Jack told Ipswich Player. 

“I’ve been on the bench a few times and been involved in the squad and it’s been a great learning curve for me. 

“My game has always been about scoring goals but I know I’ve got to work on improving other areas. The gaffer and TC have been doing that in training.

“Didzy [David McGoldrick] and Murph [Daryl Murphy] have been great with me as well and are always giving me bits of advice. I have taken what they have said on board. 

“I’ve just got to keep working hard and wait for my chance. I was warming up the whole of the second-half against Bolton, eager to get on and trying to catch the gaffer’s eye. Hopefully if I’m called upon, I can do a job for the team.”
