Experienced winger raring to go for Town

Simon Dawkins described the Town dressing room as one of the closest he has been in having signed for Blues following a trial with the Club.

The former San Jose Earthquakes winger has been training with Paul Lambert’s side for five weeks, and put pen to paper on a deal that will see him stay at Portman Road until the end of the season earlier today.

“This is a massive club and I want to do everything I can to help get it back to where it should be,” the 31-year-old told iFollow Ipswich.

“I've enjoyed my time here so far and the lads have been brilliant. Everybody is very much together and it’s probably one of the only dressing rooms I’ve been in where that is the case. Everyone gets along and we definitely have the foundations to get out of this situation.

“And new additions can give a club that lift and experience that it needs. Hopefully that’s what we need to turn the good performances into results.

“This is an opportunity for me as well. I like the manager and the style of football here and I’m looking forward to it.

“I’ve had a good five weeks training and played a game for the U23s on Monday so I’m ready to go when the gaffer needs me.”
