"The fact that I am playing for a club the size of Ipswich, I have to appreciate that every day"
Kayden Jackson says he wants to honour the rich heritage of Ipswich Town by doing his bit to get the Blues back into the Championship.
In an extended interview with the matchday programme for tonight’s game against Wycombe, the striker outlines the determination of the squad to win promotion and explains why the knockbacks he had at the start of his career will mean he will never take playing for Town for granted.
“Perhaps because I have come into the game differently from most, it’s made me take nothing for granted,” said Kayden.
“I appreciate the position I’m in. I’m a big a football fan as anyone and the fact that I am playing for a club the size of Ipswich, I have to appreciate that every day.
“Kids growing up, they know the history of this Club. I certainly did. So for me, playing in the number nine shirt for Ipswich Town is something I will never take for granted.
“Every time I go out there, I want to work as hard as I can for the Club and give it my all.
“There is one aim this season; to get promoted. Being on the inside of it, seeing how much they want it - from the skipper to the young lads, the loan players as well. They all want promotion badly. No one is interested in success for themselves.”
