Town Name Team for First Half at Drogheda
Saturday, 8th Jul 2017 13:34
Town boss Mick McCarthy has named a team which is a mix of youngsters and experienced players for the first half of this afternoon’s first pre-season friendly against Drogheda at United Park.
As in the early games in previous pre-seasons, the Blues boss will switch his entire team at half-time.
The list of Town second half-subs provided by Drogheda suggests skipper Luke Chambers and new signings Tom Adeyemi and Bersant Celina won't be involved despite being at United Park, while Kevin Bru is an absentee along with Luke Hyam, who has been training but may not yet be ready for a game.
David McGoldrick, Tommy Smith and Monty Patterson have been given additional time off having been on international duty.
First-half team: Gerken, Emmanuel, Taylor, Webber, Kenlock, Ward, Skuse, McDonnell, McKendry, Sears, Pitman.
Subs: Bialkowski, Spence, Fowler, Knudsen, Nydam, Rowe, Garner, Moore, Bishop, Downes, Morris.

Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
