Long-serving Nash moves on after playing his part in development of young Blues

Gerard Nash has departed Portman Road, ending a long association with the Club.

A former first-team player himself after crossing from Ireland to progress through the Academy, he has held down a number of roles at the Club since injury forced his early retirement from the game.

“Gerard has worked at every level here from Academy, through to the U23s and first-team,” Lee O’Neill, Town’s general manager of football operations, told the Club website.

“He has played a significant role in the development of our young players in that time and on behalf of Ipswich Town, I want to thank him for his many years service to the Club and wish him every success for the future.”

Gerard follows goalkeeping coach, Jimmy Walker and first-team coach, Matt Gill, in leaving Portman Road, while the vastly-experienced Andy Rolls has joined the backroom staff as director of performance along with coaches Franny Jeffers and Ian Craney.
