U23s Confirmed as League Winners
Monday, 8th Apr 2019 10:20
Town’s U23s, who are in action at Leeds this evening, have been confirmed as the winners of Professional Development League Two South, giving them home advantage in the play-off semi-final.
The side coached by Gerard Nash and Chris Hogg, who face the Whites, the winners of League Two North, tonight at Elland Road (KO 7pm), now can’t be caught by Coventry in second and third-placed Crystal Palace, who were beaten 2-1 at Hull City on Saturday. Town have three league games remaining including tonight’s match.
The young Blues will face the second-placed team from the North section in the semi-final, which is likely to be played at Portman Road, with Birmingham currently sitting in that position, three points ahead of Burnley and Bolton and four in front of Crewe with everyone having two games left to play.
Corrie Ndaba will skipper at Leeds tonight with Armando Dobra and Barry Cotter also among those involved.

One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges

Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
From Marcus's Side of the Fence by essexccc
Most of the thinking, including my own, around the possible sale of the club, has quite naturally focused on the possibilities from the club's and supporters' points of view.
