Crowe Set to Win England U17s Cap in Euros Quarter-Final
Sunday, 13th May 2018 11:02
Academy right-back Dylan Crowe looks set to win his 10th England U17s cap when the Young Lions face Norway in their European Championships quarter-final at Burton’s Pirelli Stadium this evening (ITV4 5.45pm).
Crowe, 17, who has just completed the first year of his scholarship at Playford Road and has previously won caps at U15 and U16 levels, started two of England’s group games and came on as a half-time sub in the other.
Elsewhere, Town management candidate Paul Hurst’s Shrewsbury are in League One play-off second leg action at home to Charlton this evening with a 1-0 lead from the first match (Sky Sports Football, 5pm).
Hurst, 43, is currently the 2-1 joint-favourite for the Town job with Bet Victor alongside St Mirren boss Jack Ross.
Meanwhile, on-loan Blues right-back Josh Emmanuel was in the Rotherham side which drew 2-2 at Scunthorpe in the first leg of their League One play-off semi-final yesterday.
Emmanuel, 20, who has spent the season on loan with the Millers, created his side’s second goal with a powerful run down the right.
At Portman Road on Saturday afternoon, a Blues U15s/U16s team was beaten 6-1 by Tottenham in this year’s Academy Showcase at Portman Road.
The teams were playing for the Dick Parker Trophy, named in honour of the long-serving Town employee and Spurs fan who died at the end of last year.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
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.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
