FORMER Norwich City man­ager Paul Lam­bert has urged ev­ery­one to pull to­gether af­ter tak­ing the reins at Ip­swich Town.

Fol­low­ing the dis­missal of Paul Hurst, who only took over this sum­mer, the Trac­tor Boys moved quickly to ap­point the ex­pe­ri­enced Lam­bert as man­ager.

They will be hop­ing he can get the fans on side and lead the club away from the foot of the Cham­pi­onship.

The 49-year-old, who has signed a con­tract un­til the sum­mer of 2021, said: “I can’t wait to get go­ing and I’ll be us­ing all my ex­pe­ri­ence – and give every­thing I’ve got for Ip­swich Town.

“I know about the his­tory of the club, what a fan­tas­tic foot­ball club it is and I’m proud to be the man­ager here.

“Ob­vi­ously it’s been a dif­fi­cult start to the sea­son but to get through this pe­riod we need to be pulling to­gether as one – play­ers, staff and sup­port­ers.”

PIC­TURE: PA Im­ages
