Holy can’t wait to get started

New Blues keeper Tomas Holy is excited to get going and be part of a promotion push.

Speaking to the official website, the former Gillingham keeper has been impressed by his new surroundings, “I can’t wait to play here with a big crowd, a full house. It will be incredible” the 27-year-old 6ft 9in tall Czech said to iFollow Ipswich.

“I have looked around the stadium and it’s massive. It’s a massive club,”

“I can’t wait to play here with a big crowd, a full house. It will be incredible.

“It’s a big challenge for me, coming to a club like Ipswich but it’s one I am ready for. It’s the right move for me and I’m excited about getting pre-season going and meeting up with my new team-mates.

“I think Ipswich will enjoy League One and the potential is here to go higher up the leagues and I want to be part of it.”

Holy, and the rest of his teammates will report back to Playford Road Monday morning for the start of pre-season.

Meanwhile, Blackpool Gazette has linked Ipswich with out of contract Rotherham striker David Ball.

Ball, 29, spent the majority of last season on loan at Bradford City making 35 appearances scoring seven goals. There is plenty of reported interest in the signing of Ball, with Blackpool, Bradford, Lincoln, Tranmere and Sunderland interested in the former Millers man.

A striker is very much still on the wish-list for Paul Lambert having already secured top summer target James Norwood. TOTT understands that Will Keene is someone still very much on the radar of the Town boss.
