Garbutt Starts for Blues at Colchester
Friday, 19th Jul 2019 18:56
Luke Garbutt makes his first appearance for the Blues in this evening’s friendly at Colchester United (KO 7.30pm).
The Everton loanee, who had a spell on loan with the U’s earlier in his career, looks set to start in a more advanced left-sided midfield role in a system with James Norwood as the lone striker.
Danny Rowe is wide on the right with Flynn Downes, Andre Dozzell and Idris El Mizouni the central midfielders.
At the back, either Janoi Donacien or Myles Kenlock look set to partner skipper Luke Chambers at centre-half rather than their usual right-back or left-back roles with Tristan Nydam the other full-back. Tomas Holy is in goal.
Trialist James Wilson is among those on the bench, but Cole Skuse is missing from the squad, presumably as the vice-captain has picked up a minor niggle.
For Colchester, ex-Blues Dean Gerken, Tom Eastman and Frank Nouble all start, as do one-time trialist Kane Vincent-Young and former Town academy defender Omar Sowunmi.
Colchester United: Gerken, Vincent-Young, Eastman, Sowunmi, James, Lapslie, Stevenson, Senior, Gambin, Brown, Nouble. Subs: Ross, Fernandes, Collinge, Prosser, Kensdale, Chilvers, Comley, Pell, Cowan-Hall, Ager, Norris, Hasanally.
Town: Holy, Donacien, Kenlock, Chambers, Nydam, Downes, Rowe, Dozzell, El Mizouni, Norwood, Garbutt. Subs: Bialkowski, Wilson, Ndaba, Jackson, Dobra, Woolfenden, Emmanuel, Roberts, Clements, Huws.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
