Tractor Boys Pair Sign New Contracts

Ipswich Town defenders Luke Woolfenden and Patrick Webber have both agreed new contracts with the club, keeping them at Portman Road until 2019 with the option of a further year.

Woolfenden only penned his first professional deal during the summer following the completion of his apprenticeship, but has impressed in the Under-23s so far this season.

The 18-year-old was handed his senior debut in the Carabao Cup as a half-time substitute as the Tractor Boys beat Luton Town 2-0 in August.

Woolfenden then earned his first start in the following round against Crystal Palace, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2-1 defeat and while he is yet to make his Sky Bet Championship debut, the youngster has been a regular on the bench during the 2017-18 campaign.

Meanwhile, Webber signed his first professional contract having started his two-year apprenticeship last season after joining from Worthing.

The 18-year-old also made his professional bow in the Carabao Cup in August as he joined Woolfenden as a starter against Crystal Palace and has since been on the first-team bench on three occasions.
