Keane Delighted to Be Back
Tuesday, 20th Aug 2019 15:37
Returning striker Will Keane says he’s delighted to be back at Portman Road having signed a one-year deal with an option for a further season.
“I spoke to quite a few clubs and there was interest there but I knew if I could sort a deal here this is the best place for me,” he told iFollow Ipswich.
“My time here last season was the biggest factor in me signing to be honest. Having been here and seeing the size of the club; having the chance to work with the manager as well.
“I have kept my eye on the results and saw 24,000 here for the Sunderland game and I thought ‘what a massive club’ and I was desperate to come back and be part of that.”
Keane ended last season with a hamstring injury which ultimately required surgery but he’s now over the three-month rehab, although he expects to need to play a couple of U23s matches before he is ready for the first team.
“The big thing for me is staying fit but I’m confident if I can do that I can be a big success here and help the team back to the Championship," he added.
“At the end of last season a lot of fans said to me ‘We hope to see you back here’ and I’m delighted I am back.
“I want to help get that winning feeling back. If we can get that momentum building it can spring us back into the Championship and hopefully we take off from there.”

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
