Club careerEdit

Ipswich TownEdit

Born in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, Bishop originally played for boyhood side Whittlesford Warriors before starting his career as part of the Ipswich Town academy system with the under-8s.[5] On 12 August 2014, Bishop made his first-team debut for Ipswich Town in the first round of the League Cup against Crawley Town. He came on as a 77th-minute substitute for Kévin Bru in a match which Ipswich Town lost 1–0 after extra-time.[6]

On 30 August 2014, Bishop made his league debut in a 1–1 draw against Derby County. On 11 September 2014, Bishop signed a two-year extension to his Ipswich Town contract.[7] Bishop became a regular in the Ipswich town team attracting praise from his manager Mick McCarthy as well as former Ipswich Town player Mick Mills.[8] Bishop scored his first goal for Ipswich against future champions Bournemouth in a 2–2 draw. Bishop suffered a shin splint injury in the build-up to the 2015–16 season and then a hamstring injury when he was edging close to a first-team return. On 6 January 2016 manager Mick McCarthy said of the promising midfielder "It's really difficult for him, it's really difficult for Bish as a young kid because he wants to be playing and footballers are never happy except when they're playing. You get in a bit of a low when you're injured for such a long time and you can't see an end to it. However, when he returns, it will be fantastic."

On 9 February 2019, Bishop signed a new two year contract with Ipswich Town, keeping him at the club until 2021, with the option of a further year.[9]

International careerEdit

On 17 March 2015, Bishop received his first call-up for England at youth level after being named in the England U19 squad for the elite round of European Under-19 Championship qualifiers.[10] However, he withdrew from the squad due to injury.[11]
