Ipswich Town

Player in training with Ipswich Town



Defender James Wilson is training with Ipswich Town following his release from League Two champions Lincoln City, as reported by the East Anglian Daily Times.

The 30-year-old defender joined the Imps in January 2018 on a two-and-a-half-year deal from Sheffield United, but he only played a small part in the Imps two trophy wins during his time.

He scored on his debut, picked up an injury after just two months and last season struggled to break up the partnership of Jason Shackell and Michael Bostwick. He dropped further down the pecking order when Cian Bolger arrived from Fleetwood Town in January.

His contract was terminated by mutual consent a couple of weeks ago and he’s now joined up with the Tractor Boys looking to impress them in order to earn a deal at Portman Road.

Wilson began his career with Bristol City and also featured for the Blades, Walsall, Brentford and Oldham. He’s got a single Wales cap to his name as well, turning out against Belgium in 2013.

The Verdict

Wilson is an able and committed defender who has been the victim of circumstance at Lincoln. He would walk into any other League Two side, but with Jason Shackell’s surprise move to the club, he found himself on the fringes.

He never really bounced back from his early injury sustained in a 0-0 draw with Cambridge United, plus he often found himself at right back rather than his preferred central defensive role.

He could offer cover and valuable squad depth at Ipswich and is still young enough to force a first team start under the right conditions.
