U13s Lose to Barcelona
Tuesday, 9th Apr 2013 20:06
Town’s U13s lost 4-1 to Barcelona at the La Liga club’s La Masia training ground earlier this evening.
The young Blues were holding Barca 0-0 at the break, the home side having missed a 28th minute penalty, but the Catalonian giants grabbed two quick goals in the second half before Charlie Brown pulled one back for the Blues. Barcelona added two more late on.
The Blues youngsters, who play Espanyol in the second and final game of their four-day trip tomorrow, are joined in Spain by academy director Bryan Klug, coaches Adem Atay, Liam Manning, John Coupe and Darren Oxbrow and academy sponsorship manager Simon Milton.
The trip has been funded by ex-Blue Kieron Dyer, whose son Kie is a member of the squad, Chelmsford Plastic Warehouse, Elite Renewables, WS Finance Consultants Ltd and Suffolk New College.
TWTD is sponsoring the matchball for the academy showcase at Portman Road on Wednesday 1st May when an U15 side will take on Tottenham under floodlights.
If you’re interested in sponsoring some aspect of that game or anything else relating to the academy, email Simon Milton or call him on 01473 400942.

There’s more than one way to skin a cat, so they say. Thankfully, I’ve never had to find out whether this is true or not, but what I do know, is that there’s more than one way to play football.

Mick Gives Us Wings by JollyJourno
I wish I could have been there when Mick McCarthy first tasted it. The look on his face. The glint in his eye. The dawning realisation that this was the missing ingredient in the promotion recipe he's been formulating ever since arriving at Portman Road.

Like most of you I guess, although I was optimistic about the season ahead I did not see this one coming!
