‘The culture is right’ – Johnson leaves Town in good hands after whirlwind trip
As Brett Johnson took his seat for his 11-hour flight to Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon, he did so reflecting on one of the most memorable experiences of his life.
Things couldn’t have gone much better during a whirlwind trip to Suffolk to see his new purchase for the first time, with Johnson one of 20,000 Ipswich supporters packed into Portman Road to witness Bersant Celina’s most-dramatic of winners against Fleetwood.
Johnson was the first of Town’s American owners to make the trip to Ipswich following their takeover in April, with plans afoot for the rest of the new investors to make a group trip before the end of the year. Berke Bakay, Mark Detmer and Mark Steed will no doubt have felt a pang of envy, as they celebrated Celina’s goal over breakfast on the West Coast of the United States.
