Dozzell Set for England Training Camp
Thursday, 1st Jun 2017 12:59

Midfielder Andre Dozzell will join up with the England U19 squad for a training camp in Murcia, Spain next week ahead of the European Championships in Georgia in July.

The Young Lions will spend six days in Spain as they prepare for the tournament where they will take on Bulgaria in their opening group game on Monday 3rd July, Holland on Thursday 6th July and Germany on Sunday 9th July with all the matches taking place in Tbilisi. The Germany game will be shown live by Eurosport.

Dozzell, who signed a new Town contract running to the summer of 2020 when he turned 18 last month, was withdrawn from the England U20s squad currently playing at the Toulon Tournament to be called into the U19s for the first time.

The former Copleston High School pupil won nine caps with the England U18s during 2016/17, having been a regular and occasional captain of the U17s a year earlier.

The call-up will mean Dozzell will miss the start of pre-season training with the Blues with the squad due back at Playford Road on June 26th.

Meanwhile, Norwich City have confirmed that former Barnsley midfielder Marley Watkins will join them on a Bosman free transfer on July 1st, signing a three-year deal.

Town had a £1 million offer for the 26-year-old turned down last summer and they were also understood to have shown interest in January.

England U19s: Will Henry (Swindon Town), Aaron Ramsdale (AFC Bournemouth), Nathan Trott (West Ham United), Trevoh Chalobah (Chelsea), Jay Dasilva (Chelsea), Tom Edwards (Stoke City), Cameron Humphreys (Manchester City), Darnell Johnson (Leicester City), James Justin (Luton Town), Reece Oxford (West Ham United), Easah Suliman (Aston Villa), Dujon Sterling (Chelsea), Josh Dasilva (Arsenal), Andre Dozzell (Ipswich Town), Tayo Edun (Fulham), Jacob Maddox (Chelsea), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham), Ben Brereton (Nottingham Forest), Isaac Buckley-Ricketts (Manchester City), Marcus Edwards (Tottenham Hotspur), Lukas Nmecha (Manchester City), Chris Willock (Arsenal).

Marley Watkins to Norwich FFS!
How much courting does a club have to do??

Anyway, best of luck Andre on England duty. I hope you can make a good impact on the team and make to latter stages of the Euros.
Please come back fit and healthy :)

We can moan all we like about Marley Watkins, but what player is going to chose ITFC ahead of a cash rich club in the top half of the championship. The only way we'll get good players is through the academy, or by getting lucky signing someone from lower leagues or non league like we did with Mings.

Parachute-payments destroys fair competition.

Just shows how Ipswich has fallen in the ten years since Evans took over.

With the one man band of McCarthy away on holiday,who is doing the work to make a marquee signing?Probably nobody, unlike Norwich who have had a backroom reshuffle,as well as a new manager,whilst this once great club stagnates under Evans.

I am less optimistic for next season than I have been in the 55 previous seasons,yes and that includes the two previous incumbents.

I fear that Mr Sheepshanks landed us right in it when he persuaded us shareholders to vote in Marcus Evans a decade ago,as I fear the ownership of this club is no better than at Blackpool or Coventry.

The bookies seem to agree.

This will be valuable experience for the young 'DOZZELL', playing football the right way is priceless, not just for England, but our own reserves as well, maybe it's a blessing in disguise that his not broken into the first team under the watchful gaze of our lacklustre, footballing genius (lol) and tactically found wanting DINO.
Very much agree seasider, your analyse is good as always, we have indeed fallen a long way, but most clubs go through this at some point in there history, so we no other choice than to 'deal with it'. I have a few hundred burning a hole in my pocket waiting for that announcement that the dreaded Dino has gone, until then that season ticket will not be purchased under any circumstances. It's all about the 'style and tactics' = ENTERTAINMENT, nothing else with me.

Ps on a positive, ME could be withdrawing his millions to invest in the team and MM may not be on his hols but scouting the globe looking for quality proper footballers!!!!

Doesn't matter will never play. Let him sign for a premiership club play regularly. Not good enough for Ipswich. Guess big Mick is correct when he says Ipswich aren't good enough for him to play. Guess I would be embarrassed to play for Ipswich at present. Best for you to go my son to a club who would appreciate your talent and play you and have players who would make you up your game. It would be a pleasure to watch you play in future major competitions both at club level and international level. Unfortunately this will not happen at Ipswich, but good luck for the future. If you were half as good as your dad you will be one heck of a player. Good luck and god bless for your career

41 MILLION to the scum up the road in parachute payments!

41 million and still they couldn't go up, that's a right Ed Balls up is that!

Never understood why teams get huge amounts of money for - failing!

I wonder if Dozzell has any Irish blood in him, could be worth checking out :)

The size and structure of parachutes payments are unfair and makes the football league more and more uncompetitive.

@seasider: without Evans investment in ITFC we wouldn't have had a club to follow. Sheepshanks guided us out of administration and gave us hope for a future. The history of the club would have been buried.
Over the last 10 years the club have done very well to navigate through administration, ridiculous FFP rules, academy changes, parachute payments to league competitors etc and still keep the club competitive in the Championship with genuine prospects playoffs/promotion.

Seasider - apologies for my fat fingers - I intended to vote you UP!
