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).

Good to see Cody Cropper getting into the USA squad-another one who was allowed to leave and will probably become a top class keeper. He's certainly as good as what we have now.

How do you know he is? How often have you seen him play?

Cody cropper ahead of brad friedel?

Michael11 added 10:48 - Aug 13
Sorry but Cody Cropper was only good enough to be here as 3rd choice at best. Amazed that he's been picked ahead of Friedel. Hope Hewitt can play well but more importantly keep fit as we can do without meaningless injuries. Especially if it's not even while playing for us.

Havent attened a game yet this season (going QPR on saturday)...
How is Hewitt coping?? Havent seen much of the lad... sounds promising though?

DallianAttkinson added 14:44 - Aug 13
Fussysnake, he did very well Saturday going forward especially still a few question marks with his positioning but these are the things that come with age andexperience I'm sure he will be a very good attacking full back in the ilk of Cresswell!

Hewitt is going to be a top class player just like cressy,but needs to watch his defending but that will come with experience.Going forward his is very good.The whole back four is very good and strong now,but I worry in case we get an injury.Time will tell.

in the picture he looks as if he's just left the 'old' Den after a match and been viciously attacked by a couple of thugs in Millwall shirts...spine chilling

Berra not in Scotland squad?

RedDust added 22:20 - Aug 13
I wonder if Hewitt will develop into a player 'LIKE' bale first played at LB and then moved on to the wing? We could move him there and get spearman in for RB.

Stearman Chambers Smith Cresswell
Hewitt Anderson
Mcgoldrick Murphy
