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.

The 21st Minute by pablop
On Easter Monday last year I took my 86-year-old father to his first football match. I had recently moved back from Wiltshire to support my ageing parents. Although not ideal, this did enable me to come to regular home matches having only recently seen Town play at Reading, Bristol or Cardiff and very occasionally at Portman Road.
We Love You and This is the Way We Like It by Pickersblue22
Two games. 180 minutes. That’s all it is. All that stands between us and a place in the top six. Another 180 minutes. The chance of a Wembley final. Possibly against our nearest and not so dearest. It’s all in our hands. We can reach out and touch it. Thirteen years of hurt could be ended. We’re almost there.
Sorry Folks! by stevieiriswattii
For 25 years I have been away from the area and only able to attend a game or so a season, this was after previously being a season ticket holder in the late 80s.
Cole Skuse, In the Middle of Our Pitch by everhopeful
The ball is shifted sideways. There’s space to go forwards, space to meet it, space to shoot. But just as people all around Portman Road begin to lift up in their seats, they realise with an upsetting sense of inevitability – it’s Cole Skuse.
Is It All Over? by paulthebluealien
Sorry, that title is meant to be completely tongue-in-cheek and a slight dig at those Ipswich fans who have suddenly become disillusioned with our promotion push over the course of a single game.
