Trialists in U21 Side at Charlton
Monday, 14th Jan 2013 13:03
Town have named two trialists in the U21 side taking on Charlton at their Sparrows Lane training ground this lunchtime (KO 1pm). Moldovan international defender Petru Racu is joined in the starting line-up by Banbury United winger Kynan Isaac, who has been with the club for a couple of weeks.
Racu, 25, plays at centre-half or right-back - where he appears to be lining up this afternoon - and is currently a free agent. The 6ft tall defender began his career with hometown club Zimbra Chisnău, moving on to Swedish side IFK Norrköping in 2007.
In 2008 he spent time in Finland while on loan at MYPA before joining FC Hjørring in February last year. The Danish club released him in the summer. Since then, he has spent time on trial at Leeds.
Racu, who has been capped 14 times by his country, is married to Mix Haxholm, a former ex-Miss Thailand and an archery champion who is hoping to take part in the 2016 Olympics.
Former Charlton loanee Frank Nouble is in a strong-looking Blues second string team.
U21s: Lee-Barrett, Racu, Kisnorbo, Mings, Whight, Carson, Hewitt, Lawrence, Isaac, Nouble, Emmanuel-Thomas. Subs: Crowe, Berkane, Burke, Marriott, October.

Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
How Would We All Like the Club to Move Forward? by Luka
As I write this short blog we are hearing reports that Leicester want to sign David McGoldrick for £8 million.
Would the Grass Be Greener Without Mick McCarthy? by Nuggets
The dispiriting and uninspiring defeat to Norwich was undoubtedly a poor performance. The passion was lacking, the creativity, as many of us have highlighted already, was sparse and it was another instance in this fledging season where a defensive error has cost us.
Squad Evaluation by bring_back_Wickham
As so many people are divided over whether we are a play-off challenging club or a mid-table club, I have decided to evaluate our squad so that you guys can disagree with me. So here goes.
Tickets and Other Issues by TimS
I would love to think that I wrote about tickets on a Bank Holiday Monday and the article has so much impact that Town introduce a Group Ticket Bundle on Tuesday. However, I am not that sure whether God moves in such mysterious ways.
