"This a good place to be and now the aim is to achieve something next season"

Luke Woolfenden says he is thriving under Town boss Kieran McKenna and enjoying his defensive responsibilities with the Blues.

The centre-back, who penned a new three-year deal at Portman Road on Wednesday, has featured in every game since Kieran was appointed manager back in December.

After impressing in the second half of the 2021/22 season, the 23-year-old is now looking ahead to the upcoming campaign.

"I'm really happy to have signed a new deal," Woolfy told iFollow Ipswich.

"The Club is only going one way in my opinion. When the offer came in I was delighted because I want to be involved in that.

"The manager has pushed me and shown belief in me. He's trying to help me improve my game and he wants me to keep working. I'm enjoying working with him as well as the other members of the coaching staff.

"I've been playing in the middle of the three at the back and it's a role I like. I get opportunities to sweep and read the game, but also drive forward. I need to get a few more shots in!

"This a great place to be and now the aim is to achieve something next season.

"I've enjoyed my break and having some time to relax, but I am really looking forward to getting back and getting to work."

The full interview with Woolfy is available to watch on iFollow Ipswich.
