Norwood and Judge at Playford Road
Wednesday, 3rd Jul 2019 11:26
New striker James Norwood and midfielder Alan Judge joined their team-mates at Playford Road this morning having been given additional time off at the start of pre-season training.
Norwood, signed on a free transfer from Tranmere last month, was handed the further week and a half’s break having been involved in his former club’s successful League Two play-off campaign, while Judge was similarly allowed the extra few days having played for the Republic of Ireland in June.
The Blues’ new frontman posted a video of his arrival at his new club on Instagram bearing the legend ‘First day at school’.
Norwood will get straight into action at what’s likely to be a sweltering Playford Road, while Judge’s involvement will be more limited due to the broken wrist he suffered in Ireland's Euro 2020 qualifier in Denmark.
The Town squad fly out to Germany for their 12-day training camp tomorrow with their first friendly against Paderborn at the Stadion Laumeskamp in Delbrück on Saturday afternoon.
Meanwhile, former Blues defender Paul Digby has joined League Two Stevenage from Forest Green Rovers, while ex-midfielder Adam McDonnell has moved from Aldershot to Boreham Wood.
Elsewhere, released Rotherham defender Dominic Ball, who was linked with Town earlier in the summer, has signed for QPR.

You know me NSV.
Like to tell it as it is.

Should be plenty of available parking spaces for Norwood with all the following having left the building!
James Collins (released)
|midastouch added 12:42 - Jul 3|
Meant to put released next to Gerken, Spence, Knusden, Adeymi and Ward too.

All the available spaces, and he pulls into bay 8...not a great 1st day at the office. It was only when he went to move into bay 4, that he was warned of how Hurst got off on the wrong foot.....

Adeyemi didn't take up a car parking space
didn't drive a car due to his injuries,had to get a lift
|Barty added 12:58 - Jul 3|
Excellent but I am waiting to hear about further signings which we definitely need
|midastouch added 12:59 - Jul 3|
Adeyemi always had priority parking with his Blue Badge!
|midastouch added 13:01 - Jul 3|
He was also meant to be partial to the Park and Free Ride
|ITFCsince73 added 13:12 - Jul 3|
Barty. Unfortunately all of the best bosman frees have been snapped up already like Norwood was. The last of them are just dotting the I,s and crossing the t,s.

ITFCsince73. I think you are probably right mate
|bluemike1969 added 13:20 - Jul 3|
Well I heard Chambers came to pull into a parking space but someone else cut in before him!!!!!
|ThaiBlue added 16:57 - Jul 3|
Heard on the grape vine we are about to sign Luke garbutt from Everton.
|Linkboy13 added 18:06 - Jul 3|
Sure its not Luke Garbage only joking hope your right mate.
|therein61 added 18:28 - Jul 3|
Welcome Mr Norwood looking forward to seeing Judge supply you with the ammo to fill the net next season.
|ITFCsince73 added 18:33 - Jul 3|
Luke Garbutt a player who,s really lost his way over recent years.
Should be a good fit.
Now official QPR have lost their star midfield man.
If the Judge rumours are true, now could be the time they make there move....
|DifferentGravy added 18:49 - Jul 3|
Blimey MidasTouch..........until you listed them,I hadnt appreciated just how much of a clear out Town have had!
|Vanisleblue2 added 19:38 - Jul 3|
Bialkowski Emanuel New Huws Chambers Nsala Edwards Judge Norward new Dozzell
|jas0999 added 20:03 - Jul 3|
Can’t wait to hear of our much needed signings. I’m sure Evans is working extremely hard to bring more quality into the club.
