Ipswich Sunday Football League Team of the Season 2015/2016
Jack Shelcott plays 100th match Shelcott plays 100th game Jack Shelcott reaches his century

Jack Shelcott played his 100th game when he was named captain against Bucklesham Shannon in the County Cup.

I remember when Jack joined as a 19 year old. His over-long boardy shorts and slight build made me think he would struggle to really get involved and, on what could've been his first game, he ended up as an unused sub. However, he made his debut a week later, as substitute, in the cup against Real Shepherd & Dog and really made us all take notice during his full debut against Felixstowe Harpers, who were a well established and strong team. He had a highly impressive game at left back and was voted man of the match, going on to start every one of his next 34 matches through two very tough seasons for the club.

He scored his first goal for the club in the 7-0 mauling of Palgrave Harts and has proven he is a player capable of playing further forward, popping up on the score sheet from time to time when doing so. Jack's finest moment came as he completed a hat-trick in under 55 minutes in his 50th match, in a game where he also picked up man of the match.

Jack is the most accomplished full-back at the club and as a natural left-footer he continues to be a valuable assest to Playford - long may our association continue.

In his 7 years with the club he has collected the Manager's Player of the Season and, in 2014, a RM2 division champions medal.
