“I know the Club also sees it as vital that the young players develop off the pitch as well" say U23 sponsors
Town’s U23 sponsors, CNet Training, are helping the Club’s Academy scholars on and off the pitch.
The Bury St Edmunds based company, the world’s largest technical education provider for the digital infrastructure industry, is in the second of a three year partnership with Blues that sees their logo on the front of the U23’ shirts.
The partnership provides the opportunity to enhance the development of the young players progressing through the Academy with CNet putting plans in place to allow players to be educated about the digital infrastructure sector and further expand their skills into network cable installation.
“We are enjoying being involved with the Club and the Academy,” said Andrews Stevens, CEO of CNet.
“Ipswich Town have shown over the years that they support their players as they progress into the first-team.
“I know the Club also sees it as vital that the young players develop off the pitch as well, and our work with the Academy will allow players to learn more in-demand skills within the digital infrastructure sector. It’s a vast area that has many career opportunities and a skills shortage.
“With more new knowledge and skills under an Academy scholar’s belt, it will allow them more choices for their future career as and when they may need it.”
