Kenlock salutes youth development at Town after signing new deal
Myles Kenlock has praised the Club’s Academy for believing in him and giving him the platform to play first-team football.
The 22-year-old defender became a regular in Paul Lambert's side over the second half of last season and has been rewarded with his progress with a new contract that will keep him at the Club until the summer of 2022.
Myles was released by Crystal Palace as a youngster and stopped playing football for a while before catching the eye of Town’s Academy coaches on trial.
“The Academy has been a huge help to me,” Myles told the Club website.
“They have looked after me since I was 16 and have always helped me in any way they can. They gave me a pathway into the first-team.
“It is good to see quite a few of the faces I trained with when I first moved to Ipswich in the senior squad now.
“It shows the Club’s hard work on the Academy isn’t going to waste. It’s also nice for me personally because I look to guys like Josh [Emmanuel], Doz [Andre Dozzell] and Flynn [Downes] as my brothers.
“We’ve had years of friendship and know each other really well off the pitch and I think that helps us on the pitch.”
