JACK THE LOCAL LAD

14 November 2018

Youngster on his Town journey

Jack Lankester is delighted with the progress he has made at Ipswich Town - a club that means so much to him and his family.

The Blues forward, who was born just down the road in Bury St Edmunds, has progressed through the Academy ranks since arriving at the age of six and has now made two first-team appearances having been involved with the senior squad this season.

"Being here means a lot to me because Ipswich has been my club since I was a little boy and most of my family support Town," the 18-year-old told iFollow Ipswich.

"My mum still has pictures of me in little Ipswich kits and playing for Blues is a massive achievement for me and my family.

"Now I've been involved with the first team and it's been great. It's been tough but also very rewarding.

"I'm delighted with the progress I have made so far but you should never settle in football and I want to continue working hard and kick on from there."
