Even though they compete for the left-back spot, Reggae Boy Greg Leigh claims that his relationship with Leif Davis is “going from strength to strength” at Ipswich Town, an English League One team that is vying for promotion.
Since signing a two-year contract with rival Morecambe in the summer, UK-born Leigh has only participated in one league game, but he has run into injury issues.
Davis has participated in 20 contests overall and has twice won the club’s player of the month award.
Leigh, 28, who made his Jamaican debut in 2020, said, “It’s been really nice to see him progress through the season.”
Now he’s racking up more and more assists, but he’s a teammate– and a mate as well– and our relationship is going from strength to strength like everyone in the squad is” Ipswich lost the Football League Trophy to Portsmouth on November 22 for the first time in more than two months, and Greg Leigh played there for 62 minutes.
He was not in the gameday squad for Exeter City’s 2-0 League One victory or over non-league Buxton last weekend, 4– 0 FA Cup victory there.
“We’ve got a goal for the whole season, as opposed to just two players and this game and that game,” said Leigh. “We’ve seen players that have been in the stands for one game and then starting the next.
“Me, I just focus on helping the team when I am on the pitch, regardless of whether I’m starting or coming on, and it’s a pleasure to see whoever is playing do well.”
