Tommy Hughes scored a brace the day after his senior debut as Ipswich Town U23s took their first win of the Professional Development League Two season with a 6-3 victory over Bolton Wanderers at Playford Road this afternoon.

It's a very happy anniversary for this EADT/Ipswich Star column today. First launched on September 24, 2012, it has overseen a period which in the main, has not been the happiest in our history, writes Karl Fuller.
Ipswich Town forward Jordan Roberts knows it will be tough to break into the top-of-the-table Blues' first XI in the league, but he's hoping that last night's brace will at least start putting the idea in boss Paul Lambert's head.
