U18s Lose to Bayer Leverkusen in Holland
Monday, 5th Aug 2019 10:20
Town’s U18s were defeated 5-1 by Bayer Leverkusen’s U19s on Saturday morning. The youngsters are currently on a pre-season trip to Holland.
Zak Brown, who recently signed his first pro deal with the Blues, was on target for Town, who ended the game with 10 men following Louie Fehrenbach’s late red card for dissent.
The U18s face Spart Ratterdam in their second game in Holland on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, young keeper Toby Egan has joined his hometown club Haverhill Rovers on loan. Egan, 18, was with the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division side as a schoolboy before moving to the Blues’ academy.
Elsewhere, new scholar Cameron Stewart is away with the Northern Ireland U17 squad at the Nordic Cup in Denmark this week.
The Northern Irish youngsters face Sweden’s U17s today, Denmark on Wednesday and Finland on Friday. Defender Stewart joined the Blues from Linfield this summer.

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
