Full-back to depart Portman Road

Paul Cook has confirmed that Stephen Ward will not be offered a new contract at the Club.

The 35-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, but having made 29 League starts this term, one more start would have automatically triggered an additional 12 months at Portman Road.

"Stephen has been an absolute pleasure to work with," Town boss Paul Cook told the Club website.

"He conducts himself greatly, he leads by example, and it's no surprise he's had the career he's had.

"Everyone at the Club wishes Stephen all the best for the future and we thank him for his efforts this season."

The former Republic of Ireland international joined Town in August 2020 and has made 31 appearances in a Blues shirt this campaign.
