Chalobah Away With England U19s
Friday, 13th Jul 2018 15:47
New Blues loanee Trevoh Chalobah is with the England U19s squad ahead of the European Championships in Finland and will miss Saturday’s trip to Braintree and perhaps all of Town’s pre-season programme.
The 19-year-old Chelsea central defender or midfielder has already joined up with the squad for the tournament which runs from Monday until the final on July 29th.
Even if England fail to make it out of the group stages, in which they play Turkey, Ukraine and France, Chalobah will be away until July 23rd when he would only realistically be able to play in the home friendly against West Ham.
Town have four other players who could potentially also be in the squad, Andre Dozzell, Tristan Nydam, Flynn Downes - all of whom have won caps at that level previously - and Ben Morris, who has played for the U17s and U18s.
The squad, which is already subject to a number of clubs refusing to release their players, is officially confirmed on Monday with England’s first match against Turkey on Tuesday.
Dozzell, who alongside Chalobah was a member of the squad which carried off the trophy in Georgia a year ago, is definitely not involved, Town having confirmed that he will be in their squad at Braintree tomorrow.
Elsewhere, goalkeeper Ben Amos, who was linked with the Blues recently, has joined Millwall on a season-long loan from Bolton.

How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
