Hewitt's Wales U21s Beat Thorsteinsson's Icelanders
Wednesday, 6th Feb 2013 21:48
Elliott Hewitt’s Wales U21s beat fellow Blues youngster Gunnar Thorsteinsson’s Icelanders 3-0 at Stebonheath Park, Llanelli this afternoon. Bristol City’s Wes Burns, Jonathan Williams of Crystal Palace and Wrexham’s Robert Ogleby netted the goals in the final 12 minutes.
Right-back Hewitt won his sixth cap for the side coached by former Blue Geraint Williams, while Town defender or midfielder Gunnar Thorsteinsson came on as a 62nd minute sub for Iceland to win his first U21 cap.
Elsewhere this evening, Josh Carson was an unused sub as Northern Ireland drew 0-0 in a friendly in Malta, while loan keeper Stephen Henderson remained on the bench throughout the Republic of Ireland’s 2-0 home win against Poland.
Overnight, skipper Carlos Edwards will win his 83rd cap with Trinidad and Tobago, and will be looking for his fifth international goal, when the Soca Warriors take on Peru in a home friendly.

Money Doesn't Guarantee Success? by wadey
Due to all the arguments about not spending money on players and other people saying 'spending doesn't guarantee success', I decided to do some research. I've looked at every club that has been promoted since we were relegated in 2002.
Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22
As one of the greatest leaders in Premier League history announces he is leaving English football a the end of the season, I think it appropriate to pay tribute to our very own Captain Fantastic.
Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans? by itfcjoe
As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
