Keeper Target For Groves?

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 05/07/2003

IPSWICH Town's goalkeeper James Pullen who is on a free transfer has commented on reports linking him with Grimsby Town. In the East Anglian Daily Times he said; "If they were interested then I would be delighted to hear from them."

"I have proved I'm capable of playing in the second division and I would welcome the opportunity to play there again."

"I'm not going to be involved at Ipswich so I would like to get sorted out elsewhere as quickly as I can. Things are beginning to happen now, as people come back from holidays, and training starts at clubs."

"It may be the case that I go on trial for a few days here or there, or even go out on loan when the season starts. That can be a way in as I found out at Blackpool."

Pullen joined the Ipswich Academy from Heybridge Swifts in 1999. He missed most of the 2000/01 season with injuries and spent 2001/02 on loan with Blackpool, making a number of first team appearances and winning an LDV Vans Trophy winners medal as a non-playing substitute.

He made his debut in the Worthington Cup game against Middlesbrough. Later made his league debut at home to Grimsby but had a nightmare day as Ipswich drew 2-2 with the Mariners. Was told he could leave on a free in April 2003.

  • Squad Number: 26
  • Name: James Pullen
  • Date of Birth: 18 March 1982
  • Height: 6' 2''
  • Weight: 14st
  • Previous Clubs: Heybridge Swifts

    Tony Butcher, in his report of the game in which Pullen played, mentioned him a few times!

  • 1. "Well now, their goalkeeper was soon espied as a potential weakness. A little lad, called Pullen. This was his league debut and there was an air of apprehension in the Ipswich defence whenever the ball went near him, which was replicated in the stands."

  • 2. "The ball trickled towards the near post, rolling past the ball boy who was accidentally wearing the goalkeeper's jersey."

  • 3. "Pullen took great care in adjusting his feet and raised his hands to shepherd the ball away. The Town fans growled in frustration at such a wasted opportunity. Oster started to moan and wave his arms about. In the meantime Pullen forgot to actually dive and try to touch the ball, and it rolled pathetically, slowly, under him and in. My, my, did we laugh again? The answer is yes, we did. The tannoy didn't play any popular music to celebrate, though the theme music from "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em" would have been apposite."

    Nuff said?
