NORWOOD ON BEING A BLUE

10 June 2019

“I’ve come here to achieve things. Ipswich have got a good chance of going up next season and I want to be part of that”

James Norwood says he’s out to make it a hat-trick of promotions after joining Town in a three year deal.

The 28-year-old striker bagged 55 goals over the last two years to help Tranmere leap from the National League to League One before leaving Rovers to head to Portman Road as a free agent.  

He had offers from Championship clubs but says joining Blues was an easy decision and is setting his targets high.

“Ipswich is a Premier League club and I want to help them get back to that level,” James told iFollow in his first interview as a Town player.

“I’ve looked around the stadium and it’s unbelievable. Looking at the size of the crowds last season, the facilities. I just can’t wait for pre-season to start now.

“I had three or four Championship clubs make offers but I spoke with Paul Lambert and he told me how he saw me fit into his team.

“It’s a massive club and I have seen how the fans get behind the team and I know what that can do for a football club. It was a no-brainer for me really.

“I’ve come here to achieve things. I have had two promotions and Ipswich have got a good chance of going up next season and I want to be part of that.”
