Dozzell Gets England Call
Thursday, 16th Jan 2014 10:54
Academy schoolboy Andre Dozzell has been called up to an England U15s training camp being held at the FA’s National Football Centre at St George’s Park next week.
The three-day camp, which starts next Friday, is for players who have been identified as potential squad members for next year’s Victory Shield, the annual home nations U16s tournament which is shown live on Sky Sports in October and November.
The 14-year-old midfielder’s father, ex-Blue Jason, told TWTD: “We’re very proud of him, he’s got a lot to work on but this is a start and he’s got to work hard at it.
“You see a lot of players representing England at U16 level but very few go on to make it really big. Just because you’re called up at that level doesn’t mean you’ll go on and make it, it doesn’t work like that.
“But it’s great for him, it’s an opportunity to go up and see where his level is training alongside boys from Manchester United and clubs like that.”
Dozzell junior has already represented Town’s U18s and has agreed to join the academy on a full-time scholarship when he leaves school.

Nowhere Fast by Mullet
"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
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.

I posted an item under the story headlined 'Taylor: Hewitt “Superb”' this morning and unbelievably I didn't receive an avalanche of negatives.
