Friday, 11th May 2018 00:58
Academy right-back Dylan Crowe played the full 80 minutes and won his ninth England U17s cap as the Young Lions were beaten 1-0 by Switzerland at Rotherham’s New York Stadium on Thursday evening but still progressed to the quarter-finals of the European Championships.
Felix Mambimbi scored the game’s only goal in first-half injury time but the England youngsters, who had beaten both Israel and Italy 2-1 in their previous two matches, pipped the Swiss to second place in the group on goal difference behind Italy.
England will face Norway at Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium in their quarter-final tie on Sunday evening (KO 6pm).
Crowe, 17, who has just completed his first season as a full-time scholar at Playford Road, has previously won caps at U15 and U16 levels.
England U17s: Ashby-Hammond (Fulham), Crowe (Ipswich Town), Laird (Manchester United), Alese (West Ham United), Appiah (Nottingham Forest), Anjorin (Chelsea) (Daly (Huddersfield Town) 57), Garner (c) (Manchester United), Doyle (Manchester City) (Dixon-Bonner (Liverpool) 13), Amaechi (Arsenal), Saka (Arsenal), Balogun (Arsenal) (Duncan (Unattached) 52). Unused: Dewhurst (Sheffield United), Daley-Campbell (Arsenal), Ogbeta (Manchester City), Coyle (Arsenal), John-Jules (Arsenal).

Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
