HEAD WELCOME COACH

SH OTA ARVELADZE

HELLO TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS AND WELCOME

BACK TO THE MKM STADIUM FOR THIS AFTERNOON’S

CHAMPIONSHIP FIXTURE AGAINST SHEFFIELD UNITED…

We were delighted to make it three

wins from three at home with a great

victory against Coventry City. It was

the reaction we needed after the game

at West Bromwich Albion and a strong,

hardworking performance from the

boys. We started well and scored early,

then they came back into the game and

equalised before we came strong again

and regained the lead before half-time.

Oscar completed his hat-trick in the

second half and all three goals showed

true goalscorer’s instincts. He’s always

anticipating where the ball is going to drop

and on the move inside the box. His last

goal proved very important as we came

under some pressure in the final part of

the game, with both sides missing good

chances. The crowd was amazing yet again

and it gives us a great feeling to win in

front of our passionate supporters.

Against Queens Park Rangers, we paid

the price for a sloppy start and not

performing as well as we can in the first

half-hour. We weren’t able to stay in the

game, conceding two early goals and

another before half-time. We know we

can do more and we will be looking for a

reaction like we got after West Brom.

I would like to take this opportunity to

welcome Sheffield United manager Paul

Heckingbottom, his staff, players and their

fans to today’s match. The Blades have made

a very strong start to the season, are scoring

lots of goals and are expected to be at the top

end of the table. They have quality throughout

their side and will be a very good test for us.

The atmosphere has been brilliant in our first

three home games and we hope it will be

even better today. We’re looking forward to

playing in front of our biggest crowd of the

season and we thank you so much for your

support. A special thanks as well to the fans

who made the long journey to London on

Tuesday night; it means everything to us.

Enjoy the game.

THE

BOSS

Paul Heckingbottom

A former left-back in his playing days,

Paul Heckingbottom made over 400

career appearances for 11 different clubs,

finishing at Harrogate Town. Completing

a BSc (Hons) in Sports Coaching, followed

by a MSc in Sport Coaching, the 45-yearold

began his coaching career with

the development teams at Barnsley.

He was caretaker at Barnsley twice, with the

second time seeing him win the Football

League Trophy and promotion from League

One via the play-offs. He was appointed

head coach on a permanent basis after

this success but left to join Leeds United

two years later. Also spending time in

Scotland with Hibernian, Heckingbottom

was appointed manager of Sheffield United

in March 2021 after initially being the

Blades’ Under-23s lead coach beforehand.

2022 SUMMER

TRANSFER WINDOW:

Ahead of Transfer Deadline day, Sheffield

United had acquired five new players

during the summer transfer window.

Bosnian international Anel Ahmedhodžić

joined on a permanent transfer while

fellow defender Ciaran Clark joined

on loan from Newcastle United.

Angelo Cappello, Harvey Cullinan and Ethan

Slater were all released by the Blades.

Meanwhile, Jake Eastwood, Harry Boyes,

Marcus Dewhurst, Harrison Neal, Femi

Seriki, Jean Belehouan, Zak Brunt and Henry

Hampshaw have all departed on loan.

Exciting duo James McAtee and Tommy Doyle

joined on loan from reigning Premier League

champions Manchester City, while winger

Reda Khadra also joined on loan from fellow

top flight side Brighton & Hove Albion.

For outgoings, Oliver Burke made a

permanent move to Germany to Werder

Bremen, while promising youngster Will

Lankshear also moved for an undisclosed

fee joining Tottenham Hotspur.

MEET

OPPOSITION

THE

BETWEEN THE POSTS

Former Swindon Town and Rangers

goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has started all

of Sheffield United’s eight games this season,

keeping three clean sheets. Beginning his

youth career at Fulham, the former Crystal

Palace shot-stopper has had previous loan

spells at Bromley (twice), Boreham Wood,

Histon and Swindon Town before signing

for the latter permanently in 2012.

Earning four senior caps for Wales, Adam

Davies has not featured at all this season

for Paul Heckingbottom’s side, with

academy graduate Jordan Amissah being

named in the matchday squad in all eight

fixtures for the Blades this campaign.

Born in Herne, Germany, Amissah is of

Ghanaian dissent and was in Schalke’s

and Borussia Dortmund’s academy

before joining Sheffield United in 2018.

Spending time out on loan at Guiseley

and Spennymoor Town, Amissah made his

Blades’ debut in 1-1 EFL Championship

fixture against Luton Town last month.

AT THE BACK

Summer signing Anel Ahmedhodžić has

scored three goals in six Championship

fixtures since his arrival from Swedish

side Malmö FF. Fellow summer

signing Ciaran Clark brings over 300

professional club games of experience

to an already experienced backline.

Vice-captain John Egan, Chris Basham,

Jack Robinson and Jack O’Connell

have made just under 1,500 professional

appearances combined, while youngster

Kyron Gordon provides another option.

On the right side, Greek international

George Baldock has featured in all seven

Championship games for the Blades due

to Jayden Bogle’s absence with injury.

Baldock has made 173 appearances for

the Blades since his move from MK Dons

and currently has four caps for Greece.

On the other flank, Max Lowe has

predominantly been the first choice

this season. Republic of Ireland

international Enda Stevens and Wales

international Rhys Norrington-Davies

are other options that can be used.

IN THE MIDDLE

On-loan trio James McAtee, Tommy Doyle

and Reda Khadra have strengthened the

options across Sheffield United’s midfield.

Ismaila Coulibaly has also returned from

his loan spell with Beerschot V.A, with

the two-time Mali Under-20 international

scoring five goals in 42 appearances in the

Jupiler Pro League across two seasons.

Norway international Sander Berge has

netted two and registered two assists in

seven Championship fixtures this season.

Meanwhile, experienced duo John Fleck

and Oliver Norwood have also been

regular features in the Blades’ midfield this

season. Combined, Fleck and Norwood

have made over 1,000 club appearances

throughout their respected careers.

Versatile midfielder Ben Osborn provides an

option either out wide on the left flank or in

the centre of the park, while youngster Ollie

Arblaster will be looking to make his league

debut for his boyhood club after making his

professional debut in the EFL Cup last month.

UPFRONT

Capped 17 times for Scotland, Oliver

McBurnie has scored two in last two

Championship fixtures for Sheffield United,

netting against Luton Town and Reading

respectively. Meanwhile, club captain Billy

Sharp is a natural finisher at this level, netting

128 goals in 364 Championship appearances.

One-time Senegalese international

Iliman Ndiaye is the Blades’ top scorer

this season, scoring four goals in seven

league appearances. The ex-Marseille

youth was signed by Sheffield United

in August 2019 from non-league side

Boreham Wood and features both as an

attacking midfielder and as a striker.

Ex-Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster

and Blades’ academy graduate Daniel

Jebbison have featured regularly in

the Championship for manager Paul

Heckingbottom. Meanwhile, Danish teenager

William Osula is the next product from

the Blades’ illustrious academy, with the

19-year-old made his professional debut for

the club last season against Blackpool.

WE MEET AGAIN…

WE LOOK AT PREVIOUS ENCOUNTERS AGAINST THIS AFTERNOON’S OPPOSITION, SHEFFIELD UNITED…

2018 – Shootout Win

Sends Tigers Through

Hull City progressed to the second round

of the League Cup with a 5-4 penalty

shootout win over Sheffield United.

Jon Toral opened the game’s scoring on 18

minutes with a cushioned finish, after he

played a neat one-two with Nouha Dicko.

Both Will Keane and John Egan hit the

woodwork in the second half before

the Blades equalised with 12 minutes

of normal time to play as Billy Sharp

volleyed past David Marshall.

Chris Basham thought he found a

winner in stoppage time, but his effort

was cleared off the line by Toral as the

game went straight to penalties.

Oliver Norwood blazed over the

opening spot-kick before the rest of

the penalties were all converted, with

Kevin Stewart scoring the winner.

2010 – Bullard’s

Boxing Day Delight

Jimmy Bullard netted a 90th minute

winner to secure a 3-2 victory over

the Blades at Bramall Lane.

ONE FAMILY.

12

ONE DREAM.


Jay Simpson gave the Tigers a 2-0 lead at

half-time, scoring the opening goal on three

minutes before winning and converting a spotkick

in front of the packed out away section.

Ched Evans scored an 11-minute brace to

pull the scores level before Nigel Pearson’s

side secured all three points in injurytime.

Quick distribution from goalkeeper

Vito Mannone released Cameron Stewart

who burst into the hosts’ penalty area.

His low strike was parried by Steve

Simonsen into the path of Bullard who

poked the ball into the empty net.

1971 – Victory in The

Battle of Bramall Lane

Over 40,000 fans witnessed Terry

Neill’s Hull City reign victorious in ‘The

Battle of Bramall Lane’ back in 1971.

Club legends Chris Simpkin (pictured)

and Ken Wagstaff were the scorers on

the day as the Tigers finished the day

second in the Division Two table.

1934 – Duncan Hat-

Trick Defeats Blades

Andrew Duncan’s third and final hattrick

for Hull City saw the Tigers defeat

Sheffield United in a seven goal thriller.

This was the first league meeting

between the two sides as 12,217 fans

attended the fixture at Bramall Lane.

Duncan Hutchison also got himself on the

scoresheet for John Hill’s side as the Tigers

rose to 19th in the Division Two table.

FRANCE

SHARED

SHIRTS

Heritage Number: #852

Hull City Career: 151 appearances, 9 goals

Sheffield United Career: 10 appearances

One of only four Hull City players to

feature for the club in the top four

divisions of English football, Ryan France

started his career at Alfreton Town. Being

touted for a move to a number of league

clubs, France chose to remain at Alfreton

until finishing his degree at Nottingham

Trent University, graduating in Sport &

Exercise Science and Mathematics.

Spending time on trial at Ipswich Town and

not being offered a contract by the Tractor

Boys, France joined Hull City in September

2003 for a fee of £15,000 after scoring 45

goals in 199 league appearances for Alfreton.

Winning two successive promotions with

Alfreton between 2001 and 2003, France

continued this impressive achievement

with Peter Taylor’s Hull City. Netting on

his Tigers’ debut in a 6-1 victory against

Kidderminster Harriers, the versatile midfielder

made 30 appearances in all competitions,

netting three goals, as Hull City secured

automatic promotion from the fourth tier.

Scoring four goals in 34 competitive

appearances the following campaign saw

the 41-year-old secure his fourth consecutive

promotion as the Tigers made it back-toback

promotions. France was an ever-present

in his first season in the Championship,

featuring 35 times in England’s second

tier, netting in fixtures against Brighton &

Hove Albion and Queens Park Rangers.

A cruciate ligament injury in early 2007

halted France’s progress as the Tigers were

promoted to the Premier League in May

2008. The versatile midfielder made his

Premier League debut in January 2009 against

Arsenal before featuring in a goalless draw

against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. In June

2009, France was released by Hull City.

Spending time on trial at Sheffield Wednesday

and even scoring in their pre-season victory

over Hartlepool United, France joined

Sheffield United a month later on a twoyear

deal. Making his Blades’ debut in their

season opener against Middlesbrough,

France was unable to hold a place down

in the first team before picking up a knee

injury in February 2010, ending his career.

After retiring from the game, France

now works in wealth management.

AFTER MAKING A FLYING START TO THE SEASON, MIDFIELDER

REGAN SLATER IS EXCITED ABOUT THE PROSPECT OF COMING

UP AGAINST HIS FORMER CLUB IN THIS AFTERNOON’S

HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED GAME AGAINST SHEFFIELD UNITED.

Born in Sheffield, the 22-year-old rose

through the ranks at Bramall Lane, making

his first-team debut against Grimsby Town

in 2016. He was loaned out three times

during his spell with the Blades, including a

successful spell with us in our title-winning

campaign in League One in 2020/21.

Now back at the MKM Stadium on a

permanent basis, Slater is looking forward

to pitting his wits against his former club

for the second time in a matter of months.

The midfielder started in February’s goalless

draw against the Blades at Bramall Lane,

and will be hoping to be named in Shota

Arveladze’s starting line-up once again

this afternoon at the MKM Stadium.

“It’s a big game for me,” said Slater. “I’ve got

a lot of family and friends who are Blades,

and having played there myself, it’s a massive

game for me. It’s a game I want to win and

play well in. I spent my entire career there

until I came here (on a permanent basis in

January). It would be nice to do well against

them, to pick up three points would be the

best feeling (for me) and the best outcome.”

“I get a lot of people messaging me

asking whether I’ve seen when it is (the

fixture against Sheffield United). I know a

lot of people who take an interest in this

game. It’d be nice if they (my family and

friends) were showing me a bit of support.

I know some people who will definitely

be supporting Sheffield United.”

Following additions to the squad this

summer such as Jean Michaël Seri, who

won promotion to the Premier League last

season with Fulham, competition for places

in midfield is fierce. However, healthy

competition is something that Slater, who

made his 50th league appearance for

the Tigers in midweek against Queens

Park Rangers, believes will only make

the squad stronger moving forward.

“It keeps everyone hungry,” said Slater.

“It keeps you competitive in training.

(Jean Michaël) Seri has come in and has

played a lot of football at a very good

football club for the past few years. It’s

interesting to watch him and the things that

he does because he’s a very good player.

As soon as he came in, you could see how

relaxed and comfortable he was with the

ball at his feet. He’s good to watch.”

“The mood (in the camp) is good,” added

Slater. “We come in everyday and everyone

gets on. The lads who have come in have

been great so far and I haven’t got a bad

word to say about anyone. The morale

(in the camp) is good at the minute.”

Having made a promising start to the

season with 11 points after seven games

in the Championship, Slater is determined

to help the team maintain our good run

of form, starting with this afternoon’s

game against Sheffield United.

“If your target isn’t to go and win as

many games as possible then you need

to give your head a wobble,” said Slater.

“We’ve got off to a good start and

hopefully, we can keep that going.”

STEPHEN

QUINN

Hull City Career: 97 appearances, 5 goals

Sheffield United Career: 238 appearances, 22 goals

In 2005, Stephen Quinn made an important

decision that shaped his footballing

future. Leaving his home nation of Ireland,

after making one appearance for St

Patrick’s Athletic, the midfielder made

the trip across the waters to sign for

Sheffield United. Seventeen years later

and the 36-year-old has had a successful

career across seven English clubs, with

this afternoon’s opponents being the first.

“It was exciting to say the least,” said

Quinn. “It was difficult coming across

from Dublin to digs, but I was just focused

on becoming a footballer and Sheffield

United was probably the best club for me

to come to, because it is hard working and

honest club. I went into their youth team

set-up at first, played a handful of games

and then I was moved up to the reserves

where we had a really good team with

the likes of Billy Sharp playing for us.”

Making two appearances in the League

Cup for the Blades, important loan spells at

MK Dons and Rotherham United followed

before Quinn made his Premiership debut

the following season. Scoring his first goal

training well and competing with the players

who were at the club. To get my debut

was a dream come true. It was a reward

for all the hard work and fight that I put

in through my career. There are a lot of

sacrifices that go with it so that was a big

reward. I felt like I was ready, both mentally

and physically and for Neil Warnock to

give me the opportunity was excellent

and I felt like I took it with both hands.”

Making 16 appearances in the top flight,

the Blades were unable to remain in

the Premiership after being relegated

on the final day. From that point, the

club went under a transitional period

for a number of years where managers

and players came and went.

However, Quinn was a consistent mainstay

throughout his time at Bramall Lane.

Making an impressive 238 appearances

for the club, the 18-time Republic of

Ireland international predominantly

spoke on how the fans created a special

atmosphere through thick and thin.

“The fans took to me straight away. The

passion they have at Bramall Lane was

something I had never witnessed before and

I probably took it for granted to be honest.

It is a pretty special place. I only realised it

when I saw Sheffield United a couple of years

ago when they were in the Premier League

and I went to watch them as a fan and I

could actually take the atmosphere in. When

you’re a player, you notice it a little bit just

before the game but you’re so involved in

the game that it all sort of passes you by.”

On transfer deadline day of 2012, Quinn left

the Blades to join Hull City on a three-year

deal. Speaking on the move, the 36-year-old

said: “I was on the training pitch and Danny

Wilson said ‘you’ve got to go for a medical

as Hull are in for you.’ I went to Hull and had

some talks with Steve Bruce and then I had

to do some fitness checks and a medical, and

the medical was literally next to my house so

I had to come back to Sheffield to do it and

it was on the same day my wife qualified as a

nurse so it was a day I couldn’t really forget.

“I felt that it was the right time,” added

Quinn. “Having so many years with

Sheffield United, I hoped that we could

CUP SEMI-FINAL.

have won promotion (from League One)

against Huddersfield Town, but it didn’t

happen and I think myself and the club

had to move on to further my career.

When Hull came in, it was a no-brainer

for me and they were looking to build

something and I wanted to be a part of it.”

The following day, Quinn made an immediate

impact as he connected with Jay Simpson’s

cross to score on his Tigers’ debut, a 3-1

home win over Bolton Wanderers. Making

41 league appearances, the midfielder

played a key role in helping Bruce’s men

secure promotion to the Premier League.

However, like every Hull fan, Quinn had

to wait an agonising 15 minutes to see

if the Tigers’ 2-2 draw against Cardiff

City was enough to secure automatic

promotion, with Watford’s game against

Leeds United game kicking off late.

“It was just the unknowns of everything.

The highs and lows, it was the most bizarre

day! I remember it being really warm and

‘big Abby’ (Abdoulaye Faye) gave away

a penalty in the last minute and he was

so emotional about it. It was absolutely

bizarre as we felt like we had already

done it when the fans invaded the pitch

and we had to go back in the tunnel and

watch the last 15 minutes of the match.

“I remember Paddy Kenny was in goal for

Leeds. I had played with Paddy at Sheffield

United and he made some big stops so I was

happy he was keeping them out and when

the final whistle went in the tunnel, well,

ONE DREAM.


there are pictures of us going berserk and

the fans loving it on the pitch. It was just an

incredible day and it was probably one of the

best group of men I have ever played with.”

As promotion ended season one with

the Tigers, Quinn played a key role in

the next historic adventure the following

campaign. Reaching the club’s first-ever

FA Cup final, the midfielder scored in the

semi-finals against Sheffield United and

assisted Curtis Davies’ finish in the final.

“You couldn’t really write it to be honest,

playing against the Blades. To score

against them was a great moment for

myself in an FA Cup semi-final. I had

been through some tough times, highs

and lows through my career and in my

personal life as well as my parents passed

away and I know a lot of people said

I celebrated, but there wasn’t really a

celebration, it was more to my parents

than anything else,” explained Quinn.

I KNOW THE TRANSITION

IS COMING SOON SO I

OBVIOUSLY TRY AND

HELP OTHER PLAYERS TO

PROGRESS IN THEIR CAREER.

“Obviously it was great to get through to

the FA Cup final and on that day Sheffield

United were top class. Funnily enough

my current gaffer (Nigel Clough) keeps

reminding me of it now as he was the

manager of Sheffield United at the time. I

knew ‘big H’ (Harry Maguire) was playing

and we ended up playing at Hull together.

We were travel buddies, travelling into Hull,

ONE DREAM.


and he reminded me about scoring that

goal, but for Hull it was an amazing day

and another brilliant season. It was a great

moment for the club to reach an FA Cup

final against one of the biggest clubs in the

country in Arsenal and also to go 2-0 up,

that day was insane and it is one I will never

forget as well, the semi-finals and the final.

“It just hurts me that we didn’t win it to

be honest,” added Quinn. “I think we

should have won it and I am disappointed

that we didn’t. I’ve still got a bit of a

feeling inside my stomach where I’m

disappointed, because we went 2-0 up and

we were playing so well. We had them on

the ropes and we just let it slip really.”

Spending another season with Hull City,

Quinn left the club at the end of the

2014/15 campaign following the expiration

of his contract. Moves to Reading, Burton

Albion and Mansfield Town followed,

with the latter being his current club.

Beginning his second full season with

the League Two side, the 36-year-old

has made over 70 appearances for the

Stags as Clough’s men is aiming for

promotion from England’s fourth tier.

“I’m loving my time at Mansfield,” said

Quinn. “I’m loving that the manager helps

me recover after games, like giving me extra

days so it gives me longevity in the game.

I feel really privileged to have a look back

on my career and still be playing. I know

the transition is coming soon so I obviously

try and help other players to progress in

their career. I know I can’t play forever, but I

would like to give back and stay in the game.

“I still go down to Sheffield United academy

so I’ll see if I can maybe start my badges.

I feel like I’ve had a good career and I

know I would have changed a few different

things throughout it, but over the period

I couldn’t really ask for more from coming

from a council estate in Dublin to achieve

what I have done; I’m pretty proud of it.”

“It can be a nervous experience when you first

do it, so I like to help anybody that is new

to it and help to make them feel welcome.”

HULL CITY ACADEMY DUO VISIT

TRUST FOOTBALL CENTRE

Hull City Academy scholars Ben Voase

and Glen Sani helped deliver a session to

children at the Tigers Trust’s University

of Hull Football Centre last week.

JOSEPH TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE

OF OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH

THE TIGERS TRUST

The Tigers Trust is proud to deliver

the NCS programme each summer to

teenagers across Hull and East Riding.

Sixteen-year-old Joseph Morton

participated in NCS this summer and he

is certain that he has come away from the

programme with lifelong memories.

He said: “The experience was one I

won’t forget, and I am so glad I did it.

“It allowed me the opportunity to learn

new skills, have a great time with my

friends and to meet new people.”

Joseph’s engagement with the Trust will not

finish here as he also volunteers his time

as a Match Ball Assistant for Hull City.

Voase used his experience as a goalkeeper

to explain the importance of being vocal,

and Sani provided some helpful insight on

how to be more intelligent as an attacker.

The session then finished with a Q&A

which included questions about their

careers so far and what motivated

them to become footballers.

Speaking about the visit, the Trust’s

Marcomms Assistant Olly Burdett said:

“It is clear to see both the influence

and impact both Ben and Glen had on

these children, and we are massively

grateful to them for coming down.

“It was a pleasure to be joined too by

Terry Angus from the PFA who visited to

find out more about the work that our

team carry out in the community.”

His reliability and commitment to

the role has seen him take on further

responsibility, such as placing the stools

out pre-game and informing the other

Match Ball Assistants of their positions.

Speaking about this experience, he

said: “I really enjoy it and love having

an important role during the games.

TOWN IN THE PROFESSIONAL

DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE.

Jake Leake [pictured], who was captaining

UNDER-18'S UPDATE

THE UNDER-18S SUFFERED A

NARROW 1-0 DEFEAT AGAINST

MILLWALL IN THEIR FIRST HOME

GAME OF THE 2022/23 SEASON.

Despite having the better of the opportunities

in the fixture at Bishop Burton College,

it was the Lions that travelled back to

East London with all three points in the

Professional Development League.

“We followed the plan and played well, but we

were just unlucky off one set-piece,” said firstyear

scholar Archie Cooper. “We bounced back

from the last result (against Bristol City) and

put everything into the game, and it was just

unlucky not to come away with any points.”

At the time of writing, John Anderson and Billy

Clarke’s side turned their attention to the U18

Professional Development League Cup as they

faced Doncaster Rovers in the first group fixture on

Saturday. The full list of the group fixtures are below:

ARCHIE

COOPER

DESPITE ONLY JOINING THE CLUB ON A TWO-YEAR SCHOLARSHIP IN JUNE 2022, ARCHIE COOPER

HAS BEEN INCLUDED IN THE UNDER-18S PLAYER COMMITTEE FOR THE 2022/23 SEASON…

The defender was one of four players to be

named in the committee that will support

captain Rocco Coyle in leading John

Anderson and Billy Clarke’s side during this

campaign. Fellow first-year scholar Paul

Iggulden and second-year scholars Ben

Voase and James Carr will work alongside

Cooper in the committee, with the 16-yearold

proud to be selected for the role.

“It is a very big honour,” said Cooper. “I

was very surprised as I didn’t think I would

be in it, but to say that I am in the player

committee is quite big and obviously I am

quite proud of it and happy with it.”

Making the move from Ipswich Town, the

London-born defender has settled into his new

surroundings in East Yorkshire, and is enjoying

the new challenges as well as being in a good

environment both on and off the pitch.

“It is a big step up for me, but a good one,”

explained Cooper. “All the boys have been

welcoming; they’re good people to be

around.

“The digs have been really welcoming. It is

almost like I have swapped families. They care

about me and make me and do everything

I need which I am very grateful of.”

Describing himself as an old fashioned

centre-half that loves a tackle, the

16-year-old is delighted to be learning

from former Hull City defender John

Anderson and ex-EFL striker Billy Clarke.

“It is very helpful having John as my manager,

because I can always ask him questions

and I know he is going to have the answer,

while Billy really wants you to work hard and

use every bit of energy you have got.”

Starting both of the Under-18s’ league fixtures

this season, the defender is looking forward

to the Professional Development League Cup,

a competition that Cooper helped Ipswich

win last season in its debut campaign.

Focusing on the first group game against

Doncaster Rovers and his targets for the year,

Cooper said: “You can never go wrong with

a good cup run. They’re all important games

whether that is group stage or the final.

“I am hoping to train a few times with the

Under-21s and hope to get on the bench.

The main target is I want to play good

all season and stay healthy and fit.”
