Edwards to Make Gold Cup Debut
Monday, 8th Jul 2013 11:51
Town skipper Carlos Edwards will make his CONCACAF Gold Cup debut overnight when Trinidad and Tobago take on El Salvador in their opening group game at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey (ESPN, Sky channel 433, ESPN HD, Sky 417, midnight).
The Soca Warriors squad arrived in Newark on Saturday morning prior before holding a session at their Jersey City University training site, having previously spent time training in Fort Lauderdale.
Trinidad and Tobago face Haiti in their second game in Miami on Friday and then complete their group matches when they come up against Honduras in Houston next Monday.
Edwards, 34, who has previously won 84 caps and scored four international goals, will join up with the Town squad once his national side is eliminated from the tournament.
Meanwhile, Town's traditional pre-season reception and barbecue has fallen victim to the cuts currently taking place as the club adjusts to the new Financial Fair Play rules.
The event, held at the Cobbolds' Glemham Hall for more than 20 years, saw players and some club off-field staff mix with, amongst others, commercial partners and media.

So This is Me ... by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date by roysboys
Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)? by AndrewPC
Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.
“A Bright New Future” by BillBlue
I posted an item under the story headlined 'Taylor: Hewitt “Superb”' this morning and unbelievably I didn't receive an avalanche of negatives.
