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.

Pessimistic Portman Road by akjlitfc
Being born in 1999, and with my first game at Portman Road coming at the age of six, I have skipped the Town's most recent stint in top flight football a mere 13 seasons ago. This, as is expected, suggests that I have never seen glory in my time as a football fan.
Ten Games, Ten Honest Questions by JollyJourno
There's ten games of the season remaining. Town are one point off the play-off places and five off the top of the league. But we've only won one of our last five games, and something's not right. Time to ask some honest questions of this team, before it's too late.
Round Pegs, Square Holes and the Youth Development Dilemma! by Bluetaff
It has been discussed at length the pitfalls of round pegs and square holes – a ‘problem’ that appears to have been borne of the Roy Keane era only to manifest itself in Paul Jewell and lately Mick McCarthy.
