Youngster Hoque Named in Preliminary Bangladesh Squad
Sunday, 19th Sep 2021 19:38
Academy second-year scholar Yousuf Hoque has been named in a preliminary 34-man Bangladesh squad ahead of the SAFF Championship in the Maldives next month, his first senior international call.
Bangladesh are in the same group as the hosts, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka at the tournament which runs from October 1st to 16th.
Striker Hoque, 18, doesn’t yet have a Bangladeshi passport but has applied for a visa and it’s anticipated that the paperwork will be a formality.
If he wins a cap, Hoque will become the first Town player to represent Bangladesh.
The squad is expected to meet up to train in preparation for the competition from September 21st.

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.
