U21s in Action at Charlton
Monday, 14th Jan 2013 10:23
Recent signing Tyrone Mings is in what’s likely to be a strong Town U21 side in action against Charlton at their Sparrows Lane training ground this afternoon (KO 1pm). The Addicks have confirmed that the game will go ahead despite the overnight snow in some areas.
Also likely to be involved are Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, who was left out of the 18 at Cardiff on Saturday, Elliott Hewitt, Josh Carson and Jack Ainsley.
Last week, a very young Blues second string side lost 2-1 at Felixstowe and Walton in the Suffolk Premier Cup, but manager Mick McCarthy was pleased with their performance: “I thought our lads played really well in a difficult game for them. They were all kids, all babies, 16, 17, 18 most of them.
“As they lined up, both Terry Connor and myself said that corner kicks and freekicks were going to be a problem as there was only Tyrone Mings that was anywhere near as big as their back four.
“And that’s how it turned out to be. But I thought our lads really stuck at it and I was pleased with them.”

A Crossroads by TBT
Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
