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Dozzell, who signed a new Town contract running to the summer of 2020 when he turned 18 last month, was withdrawn from the England U20s squad currently playing at the Toulon Tournament to be called into the U19s for the first time.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

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
