Town's new signing admits there was never any doubts about returning to Portman Road as he signs one-year deal

Paul Digby has spoken of his delight at making his loan spell with Town a permanent one after penning a one-year deal from newly promoted Barnsley.

The defender, whose deal also includes the option of a further year stay, made six appearances for the Blues whilst on loan and he has his sights set on building upon last season’s seventh place finish.

“I’m really excited because I had a great time here before,” Diggers told Ipswich Player HD.

“In finishing seventh we were a bit disappointed more than anything. I think a lot of teams would have been happy being that high up the table but we weren’t really satisfied with it.

“I think we can push on this season so I’m really looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.

“I was always going to come back and there was never any doubts about that, so it was just about having my holidays and coming back to sign.

Town’s opening day fixture will see them host Paul’s former club, the Tykes, at Portman Road on August 6th, and it feels like an ideal script for the Blues’ new man.

“You couldn’t make it up, and it’s a great fixture for me,” he added.

“It’s going to be a hard pre-season but I’m going to have my eye on that so it will help me get through it, it’s a great incentive.

“I’ve had a great ten years there, I’ve learnt my trade there so I’m really grateful to all the coaches there and all the great people I’ve met there so I wish them all the best for this season.”
