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).

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
