Dozzell Gets England Call
Thursday, 16th Jan 2014 10:54

Academy schoolboy Andre Dozzell has been called up to an England U15s training camp being held at the FA’s National Football Centre at St George’s Park next week.

The three-day camp, which starts next Friday, is for players who have been identified as potential squad members for next year’s Victory Shield, the annual home nations U16s tournament which is shown live on Sky Sports in October and November.

The 14-year-old midfielder’s father, ex-Blue Jason, told TWTD: “We’re very proud of him, he’s got a lot to work on but this is a start and he’s got to work hard at it.

“You see a lot of players representing England at U16 level but very few go on to make it really big. Just because you’re called up at that level doesn’t mean you’ll go on and make it, it doesn’t work like that.

“But it’s great for him, it’s an opportunity to go up and see where his level is training alongside boys from Manchester United and clubs like that.”

Dozzell junior has already represented Town’s U18s and has agreed to join the academy on a full-time scholarship when he leaves school.

Good luck Andre,I remember seeing Dozzell senior and another Town player Andy Crane playing for England under 16 V Ireland in Tolka Park many moons ago,even at 16 Jason was a great player for us and got some crucial goals when nobody could seem to score for the Town,would be great to see Andre follow in his footsteps.

Well done Andre, congratulations. I hope you go and emulate your Dad.

So refreshing to hear so many fantastic things from the academy, rather than the usual links to every single player in the championship at this time of year.

Good Luck Andre!
I really hope he becomes as good as his father and play for us without going to Tottenham which was a loss for us and for Jason too as he didn't progress there! Other than this move to Spurs Jason was a real legend and a great player, which I loved since he scored his first senior goal vs Coventry at the age of 16!!!

Sounds like pop is passing on some good grounded advice: wonder what he'd have told his 16-year old self all those years ago? Hope he makes it big!

Hurry up and progress, jr: we could do with some decent midfielders in the current lineup!
