Online PR News – 30-April-2009 – – THG Worldwide, Inc. CEO Jon Stromberg says the appointment of Roy Keane to head the Ipswich Town Football Club is part of an effort by THGâ€™s parent company, marcus evans, to bring the team back to the top level of competitive football play, the Premier League.
â€śWeâ€™re excited about the prospects for the team under this new leadership,â€ť Stromberg says. â€śThis change is a win-win for everyone, particularly Ipswich fans.â€ť
Keaneâ€™s recent appointment to head the Ipswich club follows his work as head of the Sunderland football club, which he left last December. With his two-year contract, Keane replaces Ipswich coach Jim Magilton. For the past eight years, the Ipswich Tractor Boys have played in Englandâ€™s second-highest league, the Coca-Cola Football League Championship. This past season, the club failed to make the playoffs.
In a release, Marcus Evans, the founder of the eponymous hospitality company that includes the THG Worldwide division, says Keane "is a proven winner who encourages his team to play the attractive football that Ipswich Town fans have come to expect. I believe he is the right man to take this club where we want to beâ€”the Premier League."
â€śThe team under our new coach is already off to an impressive start with this past weekendâ€™s 3-0 win over Cardiff,â€ť says Stromberg, whose company provides hospitality offerings through its association with the Ipswich club. â€śIt bodes well for the future.â€ť
