Murray’s loan move to Gillingham falls through

12:48 16 September 2011

IPSWICH young striker Ronan Murray has seen a loan move to Gillingham fall through – just two days after scoring a brace against them in a training match.

The 19-year-old striker, who has been targeting a loan deal, travelled to the Priestfield Stadium but was left disappointed after the move fell through.

Town boss Paul Jewell said: “Ronan was on his way to Gillingham on loan but for whatever reason that didn’t happen, which was disappointing from our point of view and from Ronan’s as he is desperate to go out on loan somewhere.

“He is one who needs to be playing games as he’s a young kid of 19 and is desperate to prove himself. He isn’t one to just accept that he’s not in the first-team and be happy just training. He wants to go somewhere on loan and prove that he can be part of a first-team.”

Murray has made just one first team start with another dozen from the bench, scoring once.

  • How depressing to see deluded 'fans' and lazy journos saying Town should loan out promising players. Perhaps Jewell should bite the bullet, stop loaning in duds and play some Ipswich players for Ipswich.....revolutionsry thinking I know... but it might just work

  • He is at the wrong club , if he is expecting a chance ahead of the plethora of non-scoring strikers we play week in week out no matter what. like several youngsters before him.

  • He is one for the future and at 19 he needs to get out on loan and press for a first team start before the seasons out otherwise he could be one for the past!

Lincoln City skipper Luke Waterfall said it was no coincidence that the Imps overturned Ipswich Town at Sincil Bank, having impressed in the original tie, a 2-2 draw at Portman Road.

With Mick McCarthy enduring the most dismal period of his reign at Ipswich Town, and with increasing fan pressure on him to quit his job, CHRIS BRAMMER looks back at the Blues boss’ time in charge at Portman Road and remembers a time when it wasn’t all bad.
