Thursday, 12th Jan 2012 16:27
Academy midfielder Jonathan Leddy says the young Blues are looking forward to their FA Youth Cup fourth round tie against Burnley at Turf Moor on Friday evening (KO 7pm). The U18s beat Leeds 2-0 in the third round at Portman Road.
The Republic of Ireland U17 international , who travelled to Lancashire with the rest of the squad this afternoon, told the club site: "All the lads are really looking forward to the game and hopefully we can get a good result.
“We've been struggling a little bit in the league this season but the Youth Cup is our main focus and we're all fired up for the game.
"It will be a new experience for us, as we are away from Portman Road this time, but it won't faze us and everyone is fit and raring to go."
A win will see Russell Osman’s boys take on Reading or West Bromwich Albion away in the fifth round.
Squad: Conor O’Donnell, Dan O’Neil, David October, Aaron Jones, Joe Whight, Callum Bennett, Jideofo Maduako, Nicolay Schrøder, Lewis Acott, Jonathan Leddy, Shaun Meikle, Gunnar Thorsteinnssen, Elliot Scotcher, Mark Timlin, Byron Lawrence, Jack Simmons, Tom Winter, Jack Marriott, Carel Tiofack.

"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
So This is Me ... by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date by roysboys
Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)? by AndrewPC
Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.

I posted an item under the story headlined 'Taylor: Hewitt “Superb”' this morning and unbelievably I didn't receive an avalanche of negatives.
