New signing Dylan Connolly in line for shock Ipswich debut
IRELAND U21 cap Dylan Connolly could be pitched into action by Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy tomorrow after the Shelbourne product made a big impression on the former Ireland manager.
Connolly finally sealed a move from Shels to Ipswich only last week, the deal delayed by compensation issues. Shels are not exactly rolling in cash after the sale of Connolly, with a reported fee of just €5,000 coming their way, but Ipswich's pursuit of the player was worthwhile as McCarthy has added Connolly to the squad for tomorrow's clash with Fulham. "The first-team has got to be the aim and that's what I'm working towards," said Connolly. "I've been here a while now and I've settled in really well."
