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.

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.
An Appeal to All Ipswich Town Fans by itfctrent
Following Tuesday night’s dire performance and result against Wolves, I think that I speak on behalf of the majority of Ipswich fans here when I say enough is enough. Positive action is required and necessary if we are to oust Mick as manager.
