Former Ipswich star Titus Bramble on his emotional trip to Ghana and coaching Town’s future stars
Ex-Ipswich Town homegrown star Titus Bramble is back at the club as a youth team coach. STUART WATSON spoke to him about an emotional trip to Ghana and how he wants the Blues’ current teenagers not to repeat his mistakes.
Titus Bramble wanders away from a crisp, technicolour, sensory overload of a football scene unfolding at Ipswich Town’s training ground.
The group of 12-year-olds he coaches are warming down on one of the many pristine Playford Road playing surfaces.They are fully kitted out in first-team shirts, shorts and socks, wearing an array of brightly coloured boots and sipping on sports drinks in the shadow of floodlight towers. There’s a smell of freshly-mown grass and the sound of serious instructions echoing across the vast arena.
It’s a world away from the setting the former Blues centre-back witnessed during his recent three weeks spent in Ghana last month, coaching as part of a sports project called ‘Future Stars’.
