Young midfielder signs until end of 2020/21 campaign

Liam Gibbs has signed his first professional contract with the Club.

The midfielder marked his 17th birthday by putting pen to paper on a deal that will see him remain at Portman Road until at least the end of the 2020/21 season.

"I’m absolutely buzzing. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of," he told the Club website. "To finally get a first-team pro contact, I’m honoured at the opportunity.

"The appearance for the first-team was probably the highlight of the last few months. I’m just thankful to the gaffer for giving me the opportunity."

Liam made his first-team debut in November, coming on as a substitute in the group stage fixture at Colchester.

He was also part of the matchday squad for the penalty shoot-out win at Peterborough earlier this month in the same competition.

Away from the first-team, Liam has been involved with Town U23s this season alongside representing Blues in the FA Youth Cup.
