Nydam and Downes in England U19s Squad
Thursday, 15th Mar 2018 11:28
Town duo Tristan Nydam and Flynn Downes have been named in the England U19s squad for the European Championships elite qualifying mini-tournament in Macedonia later this month.
Nydam, 18, has previously won one U19s cap, while 19-year-old Downes, who is currently on loan at Luton, has picked up three.
The pair will join up with the squad on Saturday evening before games in Skopje against Hungary on Wednesday 21st March, Latvia three days later and the hosts on Tuesday 27th March.
The European Championship finals are in Finland in July. If they make it, England will be defending the title they won in Georgia last summer, a team which featured Blues midfielder Andre Dozzell, who still qualifies for the U19s but is out injured, almost certainly for the whole season.
England U19s: Ellery Balcombe – Brentford, Jamie Cumming - Chelsea, Trevoh Chalobah Chelsea, Edward Francis - Manchester City, Reece James - Chelsea, Dujon Sterling - Chelsea, Japhet Tanganga - Tottenham Hotspur, Ben Wilmot - Stevenage, Flynn Downes - Luton Town (loan from Ipswich Town), Elliot Embleton - Sunderland, Adam Lewis - Liverpool, Mason Mount - Vitesse Arnhem (loan from Chelsea), Tristan Nydam – Ipswich Town, Joe Willock - Arsenal, Ben Brereton - Nottingham Forest, Phil Foden - Manchester City, George Hirst - Sheffield Wednesday, Reiss Nelson - Arsenal, Edward Nketiah - Arsenal, Jadon Sancho - Borussia Dortmund.

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.
