Chelsea starlet’s ‘dream come true’ as Ipswich Town form earns public recognition

Ipswich Town loan star Omari Hutchinson has been named as the Championship’s Player of the Month for February as his success away from Chelsea continues.

Ipswich Town have made good use of the loan market in recent seasons and one of their biggest successes of this season has been Chelsea starlet Hutchinson. And, his recent form has earned public recognition.

The 20-year-old hasn’t always been the first name in the starting XI for Kieran McKenna but he has played a part in all but two Championship games this season. Over February, he was at his dangerous best.

In six games, Hutchinson managed three goals and two assists for the Tractor Boys. He has been a constant handful, be it on the right-hand side or in behind the striker as an attacking midfielder.

As a result, Hutchinson has landed the Championship Player of the Month award for February.

He edged out some strong competition for the monthly accolade too. Ilia Gruev (Leeds United), Josh Sargent (Norwich City) and Ike Ugbo (Sheffield Wednesday) all earned nominations for the title, but it was the Ipswich Town loan favourite who emerged on top. Here’s what he had to say about the award:

“I’m very happy, this is my first award in men’s football so I’m grateful. There’s a lot of players that could have won it, a lot of top talent but I was happy to be chosen.

“Everyone has helped me on the journey, this is my first season in men’s football, so I didn’t know what to expect, I think this season so far has been successful and to be playing in front of the Ipswich fans week in and week out is a dream come true.”

Who is this?

A dream loan

Hutchinson has long been tipped for a bright future in the game. From his time in the Arsenal and Chelsea setups, the forward has gained attention, so many were intrigued to see how he would fare in the Championship.

With Ipswich Town, the youngster has developed over the entire campaign, and the recent accolade is deserved recognition of his hard work and obvious talent.

Often talents who have starred in youth football can struggle to make an impact in their first forays into first-team football, but that hasn’t been the case for Hutchinson. And, with Ipswich Town fighting it out at the top end of the Championship table, it really has been a dream loan for the prospect.

The job is far from done though and Hutchinson will be determined to help McKenna’s side in their bid to hold onto an automatic promotion spot.
