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.

We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
