Baggott Wins First Indonesia U19s Cap
Sunday, 11th Oct 2020 19:06
Blues youngster Elkan Baggott won his first Indonesia U19s cap as his side beat North Macedonia 4-1 in a friendly in Split, Croatia earlier today.
Second-year scholar Baggott, 17, who made his senior Town bow in the 2-0 EFL Trophy victory over Gillingham on Tuesday, joined up with the Indonesian youngsters at their training camp on Wednesday.
The squad has been together since August 30th with the camp originally organised as part of their preparations for the AFC U19 Championships in Uzbekistan which were set to be played from October 14th to 31st but has now been delayed until early next year.
The game against the North Macedonians was their ninth match of their time in Croatia with another friendly against the same opposition on Wednesday and two matches against Bosnia & Herzegovina to follow.
It’s the second time the 6ft 4in tall central defender, who was born in Thailand to an English father and Indonesian mother, has been with the Indonesian U19s, having previously attended a camp in Jakarta in August.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too.

A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
