He agreed terms with Ipswich on a deal worth £150,000 plus add-ons in mid-January 2007, having impressed in FA Cup ties between the clubs earlier in the month.[1]


Ipswich Town

On 3 March, 2007, Walters scored his first goal for Ipswich in their 2–1 over Queens Park Rangers at Portman Road.[2] Walters has played for the Republic of Ireland U21's thus making him an Irish international, even though he is still eligible to play for England. He scored his first ever senior hat-trick in the 6–0 win over Bristol City in November 2007 at Portman Road,[3][4] in the same week he received a call up to the Republic of Ireland B squad.[5]

On 12 January, 2008, he extended his contract with Ipswich until 2011.[6] He went under the knife for surgery on a niggling knee problem on 19 March 2008 and returned to action against Norwich City on 13 April in half the expected time. In the awards night for the 2007/2008 season, he was rewarded for his hard work and honoured with the Boxholder's & Corporate Sponsor's Player of The Year and Player's Player of The Year awards. [7] In October 2008 Walters signed a contract extension keeping him at the club until the end of the 2011/12 season. Jon was captain for the first time in a blue shirt against Derby on 31st October 2009, their first win of the season.
