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.

Top Championship Teams? by JimmyJazz
So we are mostly pessimistic about our chances next season. We are no match for Newcastle and other clubs who are spending money unlike us. Clubs like Blackburn are showing more ambition? Actually I disagree with the Blackburn point.
Is it Time to Be Worried? by RyanKerry
Are you confident about the upcoming season? I'm not. How depressing is it to wake up every morning to a new Championship signing and the high amount of money spent.
Luck, Truth, Girls in Portugal by Mullet
Football is obviously a global game and these days that concept is more keenly emphasised in no other place like England, with the Premier League as vast and cosmopolitan as the Roman Empire, while the national side flounders like ball-playing barbarians.
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may know, on 1st April 2012, me and my partner Becky lost our beautiful son, Tyler. He was only 15 months old when he passed away peacefully in his sleep. Later that year, we began fundraising for a brilliant charity, The Lullaby Trust (formerly known as FSID).
Sam Allardyce – The Sensible Choice? by realprojection
My view of Sam Allardyce is heavily influenced by the most exciting match I’ve ever watched. Ipswich’s 5-3 (AET) defeat of Bolton in a play-off semi-final second leg in May 2000.
