Hewitt Away With Wales U21s
Tuesday, 13th Aug 2013 09:29
Right-back Elliott Hewitt is the only senior Town player away on international duty this week. The 19-year-old is with the Wales U21s ahead of their Euro 2015 qualifier against Finland at Bangor City’s Book People Stadium on Wednesday (4pm).
Hewitt has previously won six caps with the U21s, who are coached by former Blues midfielder Geraint Williams.
Meanwhile, ex-Town keeper Cody Cropper has been named in the full US squad for their friendly against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Sarajevo on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old, who is unlikely to play with Tim Howard and Brad Guzan also included, came through the Town academy and was on the first-team bench on a number of occasions without making an appearance before being released in the summer of 2012.
He subsequently joined Southampton on a two-year professional contract after a trial and was a regular in their U21s last season but is yet to break into their senior side.
Wales U21s: Connor Roberts (Cheltenham Town), Danny Ward (Liverpool), Daniel Alfei (Swansea City), Lee Evans (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Morgan Fox (Charlton Athletic), Kieron Freeman (Derby County), Elliott Hewitt (Ipswich Town), Scott Tancock (Swansea City), Joe Walsh (Crawley Town), Billy Bodin (Torquay United), Chris Dawson (Leeds United), Emyr Huws (Manchester City), Lloyd Isgrove (Southampton), Lee Lucas (Swansea City), Wes Burns (Bristol City), Jake Cassidy (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Ellis Harrison (Bristol Rovers), Tom Lawrence (Manchester United).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
