Gibbs Earns Professional Contract

First-year apprentice Liam Gibbs marked his 17th birthday by signing his first professional contract for Ipswich Town, agreeing a deal until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Gibbs was named in LFE’s ‘The 11’ last month having made an excellent start to the apprenticeship, working well on the Extended Diploma and appearing for the first team in the Leasing.com Trophy.

“I’m absolutely buzzing. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of,” he told the club website. “To finally get a first-team pro contact, I’m honoured at the opportunity.

“The appearance for the first team was probably the highlight of the last few months. I’m just thankful to the gaffer for giving me the opportunity.”
