Town squad confirmed with the EFL

Post by hallamblue » Thu Sep 09, 2021 12:01 pm

The EFL have confirmed Town’s squad for the first half of the 2021/22 season.

As reported last week, following the closure of the transfer window, clubs were obliged submit their squad within 24 hours with the EFL publishing the lists a week later.

League One sides are restricted to squads of 22 outfield players aged 21 and over on January 1st this year.


The additions of Bersant Celina and Samy Morsy on deadline day took the total of Blues players currently at the club who fit into that bracket to 24.

As expected, the men missing out on places are out-of-favour left-back Myles Kenlock, 24, who has continued to train with the U23s, although without featuring in a match, and Ben Morris, 22, who is in the early stages of his comeback from his second ACL injury. It's expected that if all goes to plan the frontman will be loaned out in January.

Centre-half Corrie Ndaba and Brett McGavin, both 21, are out on loan at Salford and King's Lynn for the season respectively.

All the squad count as homegrown players >under the EFL’s rules, except Scott Fraser who came through the ranks with his hometown club Dundee United in Scotland.

Centre-half Luke Woolfenden counts as a club-developed player, the only one amongst the seniors, with the EFL dictating that either the 22-man squad or the matchday 18 must include at least one or face having to name only six subs.

There is no restriction on goalkeepers whatever their age, while Rekeem Harper, Louie Barry, Idris El Mizouni and Bailey Clements are all on the list of players aged under 21.

At this rate Norwood might be asking his agent to put some feelers out. He isn't getting many minutes.

Yeah he's also earned the 'Problem Child' moniker with his off the pitch issues. I wouldn't be surprised if his hamstring problems are reocurring now anyway. Get rid before he pulls another...hamstring or pint!

Oh good shout DB….. I’d actually forgotten about him! He’s so frustrating tbh . I think he’s a real handful for defences but of course he’s never been fit since he’s signed for us has he 🤷‍♀️

Ps id just add , hamstring injuries are notoriously problematic to rehab and get rid of .

Norwood is good physical presence when fit. He'll score a brace when back.

Isn't that the meathead that was charged with possession of a vehicle while inebriated. Some would argue reason alone he shouldn't be part of the squad.

Way I see it Norwood has done 'OK' before now but hardly prolific. Look at the attack options we got available since transfer deals were concluded. Don't think somehow he'll be that missed.

Maybe a case of former players here that were over time arguably ineffective but got a new lease of life at another team set-up should or when he's allowed to vacate and move on.
