Huws, Bishop and Rowe Return to Action in U23s Friendly
Tuesday, 7th Aug 2018 16:26
Emyr Huws, Teddy Bishop and Danny Rowe were all in match action for the first time since suffering injuries which ended their 2017/18 seasons in an U23s behind-closed-doors friendly against Cambridge United at Playford Road this afternoon.
Huws, who played the first half, had been out of action since December when he suffered a knee injury which required surgery, while Bishop, who featured for an hour, injured a hamstring last October.
Rowe’s loan spell at Lincoln at the end of last season was prematurely ended by an ankle problem which required surgery. The former Macclesfield winger also played the first 60 minutes.
Despite their involvement this afternoon, the trio are still likely to be some way off first team involvement given their lengthy absences.
“It’s good to see them out on the grass but it’s just the first step. They are a long way of being fit for first team contention,” boss Paul Hurst told the club site.
Also among those in action against the U’s were Andre Dozzell, Dean Gerken, Tristan Nydam, Myles Kenlock, Jordan Roberts and Josh Emmanuel.
Town U23s: Gerken, Emmanuel, Cotter, Ndaba, Kenlock, Bishop, Dozzell, Nydam, Huws, Rowe, Roberts.

If Huws can stay fit he's quality. I'm hoping that Bishop can push on from his injury woes and become a contender for a starting spot. Rowe, I can see going on loan.
|theinbetweener added 16:30 - Aug 7|
That's one hell of a potential midfield...
|BlueBlood90 added 16:32 - Aug 7|
That's very good news but we all just want to know where the new signings are????
|christiand added 16:38 - Aug 7|
That’s terrific news, believe all three - if they can stay fit - can have a positive impact on PH’s squad regardless who is signed over the next couple of days.
|Karlosfandangal added 16:38 - Aug 7|
Last season they would be in the side but now I am not so sure.
Long way off for being fit for the squad and even further away from being in the 1st team
|positivity added 16:39 - Aug 7|
that;s a very strong looking u-23 side!
|naa added 16:39 - Aug 7|
If Bishop and Huws can stay fit we won't need anymore midfield signings (though Nolan does look quality too).
Obviously though that's a big "if".

Like many I have written off Adeyemi returning as his injuries have been many & on the finicky side, but Huws I still have great hope for after a bad knee injury. I know he was injured at Cardiff, but not convinced he's a sick note type as yet.
A fully fit Teddy Bishop, playing with confidence, on the front foot under a good manager, would be a major asset also.
|naa added 16:40 - Aug 7|
Anyone know why Cotter isn't getting a look in currently? I thought he was excellent on his debut then nothing. It's not as if we're flush with right backs.
|herfie added 16:45 - Aug 7|
Got to be a major step towards full fitness - for PH like new signings. Fingers crossed that all three continue to make, injury free, progress. No sign, however, of Adyemi - really concerned about his future here. I thought PH hinted that some of his fitness issues were not necessarily related to purely physical issues. Hopefully he can be got right and able to compete.
But seems to have gone into radio silence regarding ongoing transfer stuff! Come on guys, give us some state of play news.

Bishop, Dozzell, Nydam, Huws....if fit are one hell of a midfield.
With the new signings, and the transfer window about to close, one presumes the competition for places will be fierce. Love it. Made me almost forget about Skuglas.....almost !!

It's such a shame that we've been without these people; I'm afraid ,like others, I believe everything is currently pointing to Adeyemi becoming a totally lost cause.What's his real problems , psychological / mental / physical ?If he will not commit to resolution then the sooner he disappears from the scene the better ,BUT it'd be great to see him really fit and bringing that enthusiasm onto the pitch !
Hughs and Bishop would be a credit to any Championship side-- let's hope for news of substantial progress; they'd be costly to buy in then !
Thursday gone will be good : doubts about the squad will be gone ,and PH & CD can concentrate & convince us with a team of quite some promise ,but yet needing coordination over the whole pitch .
Up the Blues !

That's a great line up, but what was the score??
|19781981twtd added 17:01 - Aug 7|
This is all great news but what's the latest on the signings ?? This is turning into a bigger cliff hanger than who shot JR !!
|ronnyd added 17:04 - Aug 7|
naa, think Cotter is now on loan at Woking
|ronnyd added 17:05 - Aug 7|
Or am i mixing him up with Drinan?
|naa added 17:06 - Aug 7|
ronnyd: he played in the U23 match above. He's in the line-up. Even if he was on loan I'd wonder why. Have to say that on first viewing our new right-back didn't look any better than anything we already had (Cotter, Emanuel, Spence).
|timkatieadamitfc added 17:11 - Aug 7|
Karlosfandangal- if these 2 (huws & bish)were properly fit they would be starting for me definitely, regardless of who else we sign. Bishop was awesome in his breakthrough season and I think Hues will be too,it is a big if though.
They will be like 2 new great signings if they can stay fit, just hope ph new training regime pays off for them both.
|TBT added 17:14 - Aug 7|
Interesting. Derby have just signed their seventh striker in Nahki Wells and still nothing about them signing Waghorn.
|EatonBlue added 17:23 - Aug 7|
Good - it will be just like having 3 new signings. Oh wait a minute . . . .
|Lukeybluey added 17:37 - Aug 7|
Any news on the 2 shrewsbury lads? Kept looking at me phone all day waiting for it to be all confirmed! :-S
|ajs83 added 18:22 - Aug 7|
Well this is an extremely long medical (well, 2 medicals I suppose) or something's gone awry.
Is it true about Wells? What's going on? Any news, Phil?
|jas0999 added 18:31 - Aug 7|
IF and it’s a big IF, Huws and Bishop can return to fitness and play regularly, it would certainly strengthen our team. Not so convinced about Rowe, but on rare occasion I’ve seen him, he has looked okay.
Adeyemi? Time to write him off completely?
|therein61 added 18:34 - Aug 7|
A fully fit Huws and Bishop would be great news, also Danny Rowe has done nothing wrong(yet another in a series of wingers signed and ignored by whatever his name was!!) so if fit another loan spell to get games would be best, if the new signings come off and the squad is fit I fear it's squeaky bum time for the inept premiership class no/8
