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.

Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.
The Long Ball Hump by Ipswichlove
Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
How Would We All Like the Club to Move Forward? by Luka
As I write this short blog we are hearing reports that Leicester want to sign David McGoldrick for £8 million.
Would the Grass Be Greener Without Mick McCarthy? by Nuggets
The dispiriting and uninspiring defeat to Norwich was undoubtedly a poor performance. The passion was lacking, the creativity, as many of us have highlighted already, was sparse and it was another instance in this fledging season where a defensive error has cost us.
