Town Again Watch Howells
Friday, 13th Jan 2012 08:41
Town were amongst a number of clubs at Kenilworth Road to watch Luton’s Jake Howells in action as the Hatters beat Stockport 1-0 on Tuesday. The 20-year-old left-back or left midfielder is a player the Blues have been monitoring since last season with Charlton and Peterborough also understood to be interested.
After a spell as a youngster at Watford, Hemel Hempstead-born Howells progressed through the ranks at Luton and is contracted to the Hatters until the summer of 2012.
The 20-year-old has made 113 starts and 39 sub appearances, scoring 14 goals, since making his Hatters first team bow in May 2008.
In addition to three Wales U21 caps, Howells has also made four England C (non-league national side) appearances, scoring one goal.
Meanwhile, Blues boss Paul Jewell may be interested to see that his former Wigan winger David Cotterill has been released by Swansea.
Wales international Cotterill, 24, began his career at Bristol City, Jewell taking him to the Latics for £2 million in August 2006. He joined the Swans from Sheffield United for £600,000 in January 2010.

Beginnings by therealtractorboy
I am 13 and have started writing for a new school magazine (I would like a career in sports journalism). I am writing about ITFC. The theme for this issue is beginnings and I have worked that into the article whilst summarising Mick McCarthy's reign here.
Nowhere Fast by Mullet
"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.
