Sone Aluko appointed as Ipswich Town first-team coach while David Martin brought in to help goalkeeper development





Former Ipswich Town striker Sone Aluko has been appointed as a first-team coach at the club.

The 35-year-old, who joined the Blues in August 2021, made more than 60 appearances in all competitions across three seasons for Town and now joins Kieran McKenna’s backroom staff for the upcoming campaign.

The former Nigerian international, who announced his retirement in May, played 14 times during the Blues’ promotion from Sky Bet League One to the Championship, but only featured once in last season’s promotion to the Premier League.
