Sparky Leaves Cardiff City For Ipswich Town

Sparky Leaves Cardiff City For Ipswich Town

Cardiff City's beleaguered squad has lost another member as experienced left-sided player Mark Kennedy completed his move to Ipswich Town where he will link up with fellow Irishman Roy Keane.

Kennedy moved to Cardiff City on a free transfer from Crystal Palace in a move that was largely condemened by Bluebirds fans as a step backwards (see here). Admittedly, I was one and regrettably described Kennedy as an aging no hoper.

I'm delighted to have been proved wrong after Kennedy became an important member of the CCFC dressing room, and made a significant impact on the pitch after transforming his previous attacking midfielder role, into a controlled, effective defender who never let us down.

After 2 full seasons as a Bluebird, Kennedy had committed to Cardiff City for next season after penning an extension in January. However, Ipswich have targetted him and the reported £75k fee is difficult to turn down for a 34 year old.

Thanks and best of luck to Mark Kennedy who was determined, effective and a model professional throughout his spell with Cardiff City.
