FORMER Blues defender Jamie Clapham is hoping his current training spell with Ipswich Town will earn him a contract.

Currently staying in Bury St Edmunds with his in-laws, Clapham said: “I have been with Ipswich for a week and really enjoying it.

”Hopefully I can come to the notice of a club and get fixed up for the season.”

The 32-year-old left-sided player made 252 appearances for Town scoring 16 goals, before moving for £1.3million to Birmingham. He has also been with Wolves and Leicester and had a trial at Southend last month.

Watching the Blues friendly with West Ham at Portman Road on Monday was another ex-Town player.
