Dyer Coaching England U20s
Monday, 8th Oct 2018 14:21
Blues U18s assistant manager Kieron Dyer is spending the international break coaching the England U20s.
Dyer, 39, is assisting U20s head coach Paul Simpson, a one-time Town trialist in his playing days, as the squad train at St George’s Park ahead of the friendlies against Italy at AFC Fylde on Thursday and the Czech Republic in Budejovice next Monday.
Blues loanee Trevoh Chalobah is in the squad for the games, while Town duo Andre Dozzell and Flynn Downes are training but won’t be involved in the matches.
The FA have invited Dyer, who won 33 full England caps in addition to appearances at U20, U21 and B levels, to work with the U20s squad at their next few training camps.
The Ipswich-born former midfielder was appointed to his current role with the Blues at the start of the season working alongside U18s manager Adem Atay, the pair having coached the U16s last season.
The U18s have made a strong start to the season and are currently top of the Professional Development League Two South table on goal difference from Cardiff City.
Meanwhile, we understand winger Gwion Edwards is among those on standby for the Wales squad for their friendly against Spain in Cardiff on Thursday and their UEFA Nations League match with Ireland in Dublin next Tuesday.
Edwards has previously received one senior call back in 2014 for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Cyprus when a Crawley Town player but didn’t feature in either game.

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.
