Ex-Blue Mings in England Squad
Thursday, 29th Aug 2019 14:12
Former Town defender Tyrone Mings has been named in the England squad for the first time ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo next month.
Mings, who joined Aston Villa from AFC Bournemouth for an initial fee of £20 million this summer, made 49 starts and 15 sub appearances for the Blues between December 2012 and June 2015 having been signed for £10,000 from Chippenham Town.
The 26-year-old, who hasn’t previously won a cap at any level, moved to the Cherries for £8.1 million with the Blues receiving a further £1.2 million following his Villa switch - with another £650,000 possible in the future - making him the club’s record sale.
Also in the squad is one-time Town academy schoolboy Nick Pope, who is currently with Burnley.
Meanwhile, the England U20s squad for their games against Holland and Switzerland is set to be named tomorrow with Flynn Downes and Andre Dozzell expected to be included.
Elsewhere, former Town loanee Callum Connolly has joined Lincoln City on loan from Everton for the rest of the season.

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.
