Shock as Klug

leaves Town

LONG-serving coach Bryan Klug is leaving Ipswich Town after more than 30 years with the club.

The former academy director and first-team coach is in talks with club chiefs, who will confirm his departure in the next few days.

Klug joined Town as a 16-year-old apprentice in 1977 and, apart from a short break in the early 1980s, has been at the club ever since.

He was hugely successful as director of the club's academy, producing a succession of future stars including Kieron Dyer, Richard Wright, Darren Bent, and Titus Bramble.

In 2006, he became first-team coach on Jim Magilton's appointment as Town manager, but last year was given the role of head of football development.

His departure severs the final footballing link at Portman Road with the glorious Bobby Robson era.
