Judge and Dozzell Win Caps in Draws
Thursday, 5th Sep 2019 21:54
Alan Judge and Andre Dozzell won caps as both the Republic of Ireland and England U20s drew this evening.
Judge was a 58th minute sub as former Blues boss Mick McCarthy’s Ireland side drew 1-1 with Switzerland in a Euro 2020 qualifier in Dublin, ex-Town striker David McGoldrick equalising in the 84th minute with his first international goal.
Judge, who was winning his seventh full cap, was booked for committing a couple of fouls and also made one important intercepting far post header behind for a corner with the Swiss otherwise appearing certain to score.
Ireland, who now top their group, although having played more games than the teams below them, face Bulgaria in a friendly on Tuesday, also in Dublin.
Dozzell was in the starting line-up as the England youngsters drew 0-0 with Holland at Shrewsbury’s Montgomery Waters Meadow.
The midfielder was winning his fourth cap at U20 level. He could win his fifth when the Young Lions take on Switzerland in Basel in another friendly on Monday.

Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
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.
