U18s in Holland
Wednesday, 31st Jul 2019 09:58
Town’s U18s are continuing their pre-season in Holland for the next week and a half.
The young Blues and seven other EFL clubs’ U18s squads are on a pre-season trip which runs until Sunday 11th August. Subsidised by the Erasmus+ fund, the visit is aimed at promoting development and exchanging skills and ideas between players and coaches.
Around 150 players from the Blues, Barnsley, Burton Albion, Cheltenham Town, Lincoln City, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday and Walsall are on the trip hosted by a number of Dutch clubs. Town and coincidentally Saturday’s first-team opponents Burton will be with NAC Breda.
In addition to training sessions led by European coaches and fixtures against Dutch clubs such as PSV and Sparta Rotterdam, and a tournament, the players will take language lessons, visit the Overloon War Museum, watch an Eredivisie match, play footgolf and will be given a tour of the Johan Cruyff ArenA.

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.
