FOLAMI'S FIRST-TEAM AIM

12 November 2019

“I want to try and build on this and show the manager what I can do"

Ben Folami is looking to build on his first game back in the senior team since the end of the 2017/18 season.

The Australian U23 international was one of seven Town Academy graduates who featured in the Leasing.com Trophy defeat at Colchester, the striker back in action having been sidelined for eight months with an achilles injury.

“It was really good to be back in the first-team picture and I was delighted to get through the 90 minutes,” Ben told iFollow Ipswich.

“I was up against some big defenders and I’ve not had a game that intense for a long while.

“It was tough but a great challenge. We had a young team so it was a great learning curve for all of us.

“I want to try and build on this and show the manager what I can do and try and force my way into the first-team and play as many games as I can, whether in the league or this competition.”
