New Ipswich Town owner not hanging about with fresh club deal on the horizon



New Ipswich Town owner Brett Johnson is said to be interested in buying Australian A-League club Central Coast Mariners, as per Sports Pro Media.

The Verdict

Johnson looks to a very busy man when it comes to football!

They will want to see Ipswich be his main priority rather than just a cash cow and a business opportunity. They cannot afford to stay in League One for too much longer.
