Footballer Luke Chambers in Marbella

IPSWICH TOWN captain Luke Chambers took advantage of the International break to fly over to Spain in order to be present at the launch of The Heights at La Resina Golf and Country Club.

He spared some time to speak to Euro Weekly News about his playing career and ambitions for the future.Having joined the Northampton Town youth team, he was soon drafted into the full team and was made captain, playing more than 100 matches for them as a central defender.

From there, he was transferred to Nottingham Forest, where he made 200 appear- ances and was once again appointed captain of the team.

In 2012, with his contract due to expire, he was approached by a number of teams but chose to sign with Ipswich Town and yet again became captain with a regular place in the team.

He has now made over 200 appearances for Ipswich and has switched to play at right back under charismatic manager Mick McCarthy who he considers to be an exceptional manager and a good man to play for.

When asked about his current ambitions for the club, Luke told EWN “We have started the season well but consistency is everything and we have certainly set our sights on promotion.”

Having recently signed a new two-year deal with the club, the 31-year-old player is a regular visitor to the Costa del Sol with his wife and four children and is involved with the La Sala Group which is well-established in the Puerto Banus area.
