Club career

Born in Colchester, Essex, Wickham made his debut for the Ipswich Town first team on 11 April 2009, aged 16 years and 11 days, coming on as a substitute in a 3–1 home defeat against Doncaster Rovers.[1] He is the youngest player to have made an appearance for Ipswich Town, beating the previous record being held by Jason Dozzell by 46 days.[2]

Wickham scored his first two senior goals in only his fourth appearance, when he scored in the 11th and 59th minutes in Ipswich's 2009–10 League Cup First Round tie against Shrewsbury Town. He also scored in the penalty shootout, which saw Ipswich prevail 4–2.[3] He scored his first league goal in a 1–0 home victory over Scunthorpe United in March 2010, his winning effort coming deep into injury time.[4]

International career

Wickham has represented the England under-16 team and was also on stand-by for the under-17 squad during the 2008–09 season.[5] He won the Victoria Rose Shield with England, scoring in the 2–0 final win over Scotland. On 11 August 2009 Wickham received a call-up to the under-17 squad, for their three game FA International Tournament, which would take place later that month.[6]
