Ipswich left-back Tyrone Mings has revealed he is fulfilling his life-long ambition – by moving to Bournemouth to retire.
He will join tens of thousands of pensioners in a comfortable lifestyle by the sea in Dorset, where the weather is nice all year round.
Mings, 22, who cost Ipswich Town just £10,000 when he arrived from non-league Chippenham Town two years ago, has now done his bit on the football field and is looking forward to putting his feet up.
A pal said: “Bournemouth is a great place for people to retire, in fact it’s full of old people enjoying their golden years.
“Tyrone has found a nice home where he will make new friends, and there’s even an on-site manager to keep an eye on them. He’s looking forward to lazy days on a deck chair soaking up the sunshine.”
An Ipswich Town insider added: “We wish Tyrone well in his retirement. The lads clubbed together and bought him a carriage clock.”
Mings scored one goal in 56 appearances for the Suffolk club, where he developed a strong relationship with the fans. They will now hope he enjoys his rest.
