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.

This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
