Cotter, Ndaba and Drinan in Irish U21s Squad
Wednesday, 13th Mar 2019 14:18
Blues trio Barry Cotter, Corrie Ndaba and Aaron Drinan have been named in the Republic of Ireland U21s squad for their European Championships qualifier against Luxembourg in Dublin on Sunday 24th March.
None of them have previously played for the U21s but Cotter, 20, won two caps at U19 level, while Ndaba, 19, who recently signed his first professional deal with the club, played once for the Irish U18s.
Both have been regulars in Town’s table-topping U23s team this season but without featuring in the senior side, Cotter having made one start and one sub appearance during the latter stages of 2017/18.
Drinan, 20, who is currently on loan at Waterford, recently spent time at an U21s training camp but is yet to win a cap at any level.
Republic of Ireland U21s: Caoimhin Kelleher (Liverpool), Gavin Bazunu (Manchester City), Darragh Leahy (Bohemians), Dara O'Shea (Exeter City, on loan from West Bromwich Albion), Barry Cotter (Ipswich Town), Corrie Ndaba (Ipswich Town), Conor Masterson (Liverpool), Lee O'Connor (Manchester United), Trevor Clarke (Shamrock Rovers), Liam Scales (UCD AFC), Jayson Molumby (Brighton and Hove Albion), Jake Doyle Hayes (Cambridge United, on loan from Aston Villa), Connor Ronan (FC DAC 1904, on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers), Jamie Lennon (St. Patrick's Athletic), Conor Coventry (West Ham United), Dan Mandroiu (Bohemians), Adam Idah (Norwich City), Troy Parrott (Tottenham Hotspur), Neil Farrugia (UCD AFC), Zach Elbouzedi (Waterford), Michael O'Connor (Linfield), Simon Power (FC Dordrecht, on loan from Norwich City), Aaron Drinan (Waterford, on loan from Ipswich Town).

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.
