BALL IS A BLUE

1 June 2022

Midfielder to sign two-year deal at Portman Road

Dominic Ball will join Town following the expiration of his contract with Queens Park Rangers.

A central midfielder who can also operate across the backline, Dom has penned a two-year deal at Portman Road and is the second signing this summer, and this week, following the arrival of Freddie Ladapo on Monday.

The 26-year-old, who made 20 appearances for QPR in the Championship last season, progressed through the youth ranks at Tottenham Hotspur and turned professional in 2013.

He had loan spells at Cambridge United and Rangers while on the books with Spurs, the latter of which he won the Scottish Championship with in 2015/16.

In August 2017 he completed a switch to Rotherham United, but spent the majority of his time while with The Millers out on loan. Following a spell with Peterborough United, he had back-to-back stints at Aberdeen, where he made more than 50 appearances across the two campaigns at Pittodrie.

Dom left Rotherham and joined QPR in July 2019. Last season he achieved an 11th-placed finish with the West London side in the second tier, and he departs The Hoops having made 99 appearances across all competitions.

“This is a club with a real ambition and I am delighted to be here,” Dom told iFollow Ipswich.

“I have worked with the manager before when I was a youngster at Spurs. I’m looking forward to working with him again and learning more about his concepts and ideas.

“I want to get out there on the pitch in front of the fans because it’s a great stadium and a huge club.

“The first thing the fans should expect from me is hard work. I will give it my all here and I want nothing more than to help the Club get promoted.”

“We’re delighted to have Dom on board,” Town boss Kieran McKenna added.

“He has a good level of experience and he also has a fantastic character. He has been highly regarded at every club he has been at, and he lives his life to a high level of professionalism.

“Dom is also a very mature player who understands the game well. He can break play up and distribute the ball well. He is also versatile and brings a lot of attributes to the squad.”

Dom’s first interview as a Town player will be available to watch on iFollow Ipswich this evening.
