Drinan and Crowe Win Caps
Sunday, 24th Mar 2019 20:53
Blues striker Aaron Drinan came off the bench to win his first Republic of Ireland U21s cap in this afternoon’s 3-0 victory over Luxembourg in Dublin, while Barry Cotter and Corrie Ndaba were unused subs. Elsewhere, Dylan Crowe picked up his fourth England U18s cap, also as a sub, as the Young Lions beat Mexico 3-2 at the SportChain Cup in Dubai.
Drinan, 20, who is currently on loan back at his old club Waterford, came off the bench in the final minute of Ireland’s first U21s European Championships qualifier.
Crowe, still to sign a pro deal with the Blues with clubs home and abroad understood to be eyeing him, came on as a half-time sub as the England youngsters secured second spot at the competition behind winners the Czech Republic
The 17-year-old was previously an unused sub in the 4-1 victory over Japan in England’s opening match, then played the full 90 minutes of Friday’s 1-0 defeat to the tournament's eventual victors.

Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.
The History Boys by Tristan90
My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
