Will Andre Dozzell continue to follow in his father’s footsteps?



Those Ipswich Town fans old enough to remember the 1983/84 season would have felt a sense of deja vu when Andre Dozzell netted an equaliser against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.


Making his senior debut at just 16 years of age, the England Under-17 international came off the bench to score within 26 minutes of replacing Kevin Foley at half-time.

It was a fantastic achievement and start to the career of a youngster who does not turn 17 until next month, but it was made even more remarkable when you consider what his Dad did at the same club 32 years ago.

Roll back to February 1984 and it was Dozzell senior, Jason, who came off the bench to become the youngest player to score in the old Football League First Division.

Also aged just 16 at the time, Dozzell went on to become an Ipswich legend with 53 goals in 340 appearances across ten years, before spending four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Dozzell has already been identified as a potential star of the future with a number of Premier League big guns, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham, said to be monitoring the midfielder.

Ipswich Town fans, can he be as good as his father was? Is he a Premier League star in the making? We would like to hear from you in the comments below.
