Hewitt Set to Win Seventh U21 Cap
Wednesday, 14th Aug 2013 11:17
Right-back Elliott Hewitt is set to win his seventh Wales U21 cap this afternoon when his side take on Finland in a Euro 2015 qualifier at Bangor City’s Book People Stadium (KO 4pm).
Hewitt, 19, is pleased to be involved having missed the previous match in March: “I was disappointed to miss out on the opening fixture [a 1-0 home victory over Moldova] because of injury, but I hope that my experience gained in the previous campaign will be of use.
“The boss has a specific way that he wants the team to play and has got a good group of lads around him.”
Welsh U21s boss and ex-Blues midfielder Geraint Williams expects a tough game: “They will be a stern test.
“They were unlucky not to take all the points in their match with Lithuania and of course they are half way through their season, whilst our lads are just getting started, so it will be a tough test, but one that I think we can overcome.”
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).

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
