“Being a local boy, I’ve never stopped supporting the Club”
Macauley Bonne says that he has returned to his hometown side with the primary aim of winning promotion.
The Ipswich-born striker, who began his footballing education in Town’s Academy, signed from Queens Park Rangers on a season-long loan on Saturday.
Macauley has become the fourth addition under the new Gamechanger 20 Ltd ownership following on from the signings of Wes Burns, Lee Evans and Rekeem Harper.
The 25-year-old, who grew up as, and remains, a fan of the Blues, says that he is 'buzzing' to play in the first-team for his boyhood Club.
"It’s good to be back," he told iFollow Ipswich.
"Being a local boy, I’ve never stopped supporting the Club and even to this day, I’m still a big Town fan. I always look at the scores, how the players and how the team are getting on. To have the opportunity to come and play for the Club; I’m buzzing.
"Getting promoted and getting out of this League; that’s my first goal and it’s the manager’s as well. Everyone around the Club is saying that this is the promotion season. For me, that’s the goal for the Club.
"I feel like I’ve got my own goals for the season and my own targets but also for my family and everyone around who knows me, it’s going to be a big thing.
"It’s going to give me that extra 15-20% on matchdays and in training, knowing that it’s the team I support.
"I can’t wait for the first game of the season already. Everything fell into place and it just feels right to be here."
