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.

A Plea by BackTheBlues
This isn’t your usual please for unity, I think the ship has sailed on that venture! But rather a plea for the sake of the status of our club.
From Nothing to Something - And Back Again? by monty_radio
On the diamond jubilee of the rise of Ipswich Town from the old Third Division (South) we tremble on the edge of the abyss into which Coventry City have already fallen and have not yet hit the bottom.
It Really Could Be Worse by Superfrans
Instead of trekking all the way to Cardiff this weekend, I decided to go and watch my local team. Leyton Orient were playing Doncaster Rovers, bottom vs top in League Two.
Views of a Young(ish) Town Fan by tractorboy2000
After seeing the new season ticket prices, I felt like writing something would be a good form of therapy to get some things off my chest about Ipswich.
Two Defensive? by rickw
After our most recent bore-draw against Wolves I wondered if playing two defensive midfielders (DM) was just a personal gripe of mine and we actually got better results playing them or the stats backed up what I and I'm sure many other fans think - we shouldn't play two defensive-minded midfielders together.
