Flynn targets first-team action after signing a new three year deal at Ipswich Town
Town midfielder, Flynn Downes is looking to emulate the likes of Teddy Bishop and Andre Dozzell in coming through the Academy and breaking into the Town first-team this season.
The 18-year old signed a new three-year deal at Portman Road earlier today, having impressed in pre-season so far, keeping him at the Club until at least 2020.
"I'm really delighted to sign; I've put in a lot of hard work and I feel like it's been rewarded," he told iFollow Ipswich.
"It's been a really hard pre-season so far, mentally and physically, but I'm feeling good.
"The more senior members of the squad, like Chambo [Luke Chambers] help a lot. They give you a lot of advice but first-team football is a lot quicker.
"It's encouraging to see others come through and play for the first-team so it has pushed me on even more because I want to get to that level."
