Former Limerick FC player Barry Cotter made his debut for Ipswich Town as they beat Barnsley 1-0 in the Championship tonight. Cotter joined Ipswich back in January for an undisclosed fee.
The 19-year-old played 56 minutes for the Mick McCarthy managed side, however it was the former Republic of Ireland player and manager who stole the post match headlines as he resigned from his post with immediate effect in the post match interview.
Cotter’s former team-mate Chiedozie Ogbene also appeared for Brentford for the first time as a substitute in their win over Nottingham Forest.

It completes a notable week for former Limerick FC players with Paudie O’Connor making his second start for Leeds in the defeat to Preston North End.
