Cotter Training With Leyton Orient
Friday, 14th Aug 2020 16:45
TWTD understands young right-back Barry Cotter has spent the week training with League Two Leyton Orient.
Cotter, 21, would appear certain to go out on loan - or perhaps leave the club on a permanent basis - this summer with the Blues unlikely to include him in the 22-man over-21 squad which they will be required to name following the introduction of the salary cap.
The Irishman joined Town from Limerick in January 2018 and has made three senior starts and one sub appearance for the Blues.
Last December, on his 21st birthday, the Ennis-born defender scored the winning penalty in the Leasing.com Trophy tie shoot-out at Peterborough.
In February, the Irish U21 call-up underwent surgery for a ruptured adductor having suffered the injury late on in the U23s’ 2-2 home draw with Watford a fortnight previously.
Cotter, who spent a spell on loan with Chelmsford City early last season, is contracted to Town until the summer of 2021 but with the club having an option for a further year.

Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
