‘Gutted’ – These Ipswich Town fans react to latest club announcement



Ipswich Town have announced that teenager Tristan Nydam will be out for six months with a broken ankle and fans of the club have been quick to wish him well.

The 19-year-old broke his ankle in the second half of the Tractor Boys’ friendly against Notts County yesterday and had to be stretchered off.

Speaking to the club website, Town physio Matt Byard said the midfielder was facing surgery and an extended spell on the sidelines.

He said: “Tristan has broken his right ankle and there is ligament damage as well.

“He is now back in Ipswich after being taken to hospital to be assessed and is in a cast.

“He will have an MRI scan to look at the extent of the ligament damage and will need surgery when the swelling settles down.

“We will know more next week but with this type of injury, you are looking at a six-month timeframe.”

A product of the Ipswich academy, Nydam has made 19 senior appearances for the club and may have been hoping to be more involved this season.

The under-19 England international was sent out on loan to SPFL side St Johnstone for the first half of the 2018/19 campaign and made just one appearance for the Tractor Boys after his return.

The midfielder joins a long list of injured players at Portman Road, including Teddy Bishop, Jon Nolan, Toto Nsiala, Jack Lankester, Gwion Edwards, Alan Judge, and Freddie Sears.

Lots of Town fans were quick to send their best wishes to Nydam, with some emphasising how unlucky he had been.
