Ipswich Town have made a record-breaking start to life back in English football's second tier after a four-year hiatus in the doldrums of League One. The Suffolk outfit have managed 11 wins from 14 games leaving them on 35 points, with only Leicester City above them as the table stands.
The rise of Ipswich is down to sustainable ownership from US-backed investment group Gamechanger20, who are investing on and off the pitch. But, the most valuable asset they’ve acquired is undoubtedly Kieran McKenna as manager, who is the second youngest manager in the EFL at just 37 years of age.

This article will delve deeper into what made Ipswich tick as they rallied to promotion in 2022/23, and how the Northern Irishman has woken up the county of Suffolk with a slick footballing style.
