Mike Flynn Says Newport Will Be A Tough Nut To Crack For New Boy Emmanuel Osadebe

Newport County manager Mike Flynn has told new signing Emmanuel Osadebe he will have a tough job breaking into an in-form team. The 21-year-old midfielder has joined on loan from Cambridge United until the end of the season. Osadebe began his career at Tottenham’s academy before moving on to Gillingham where he played 22 matches.

Mike Flynn Wants Play-Off Spot As Launch Pad For Spurs FA Cup Clash

Newport County boss Mike Flynn wants his side to be in the play-off places by the time they welcome Tottenham to Rodney Parade next week. The FA Cup fourth round tie against Mauricio Pochettino’s Premier League giants may be on the lips and minds of everyone in the Welsh city, but Flynn’s side have two games to play before then and he is eying up six points to get back into the top seven in League 2. “Everybody can see the buzz around the club and the city. The FA Cup run has regenerated the club,” said Flynn, whose side are currently two points off the play-offs in 10th.

Wales To Test Young Talent In Belgium At Euro Indoor Hockey

The week after the men’s hockey side finished fourth at the Euro Indoor Championships III in Cyprus, the Welsh Women’s team take centre stage in division two in Brussels this weekend (19-21 January). Head coach Gwyn Williams will blood a number of youngsters for a tournament that will see his side play Scotland, Croatia and host nation Belgium in the pool stages. The winners will then be determined by a play-off, with Austria, England, Lithuania, Sweden playing in the other pool.

Dan Babos Is One Of Eight Dragons To Make Wales U20 Squad

Dragons’ 17-year-old scrum-half Dan Babos has been rewarded for his rapid rise this season with a place in the Wales U20 squad. The teenager, who has made four appearances for the region this season, is one of eight Dragons players in coach Jason Strange’s squad for the age group Six Nations. That figure is just one behind the Scarlets who have nine. Another 17-year-old, wing Harri Morgan of the Ospreys is also included as is Tomi Lewis  – one of 16 of last season’s U18 players included and who gained plaudits for his exceptional debut for Wales Sevens in the World Series in Dubai last month.

Carlos Carvalhal Says Swans Are Rolling After Cup Win . . . And One Defeat In Five

Carlos Carvalhal believes Swansea City are showing positive signs of a revival that can yet help them escape relegation from the Premier League. The Swans manager savoured his team’s 2-1 FA Cup third round replay over Wolves on Wednesday night which came courtesy of Wilfried Bony’s winner after Diogo Jota had equalised in the 66th minute. The immediate reward for the club is a fourth round trip to Notts County, but Carvalhal was eager to point to a bigger picture of just one defeat in the five games in all competitions since he took over from Paul Clement just before Christmas.

Wales Must Follow Scarlets Path To Spark Their Six Nations

Wales included two new faces in the Six Nations squad announced this week by Warren Gatland. But it’s a new approach, bolder and more adventurous, and Scarlets-based, that Robin Davey is looking for this year. The Scarlets way or the highway. That has to be the Wales mantra as they close in on the Six Nations tournament for which they are rank outsiders. They are rated at 15-1 to be title winners by the bookies, which seems fair after a less than inspiring autumn series compounded by a number of injuries which forced coach Warren Gatland to name an enlarged 39-man squad in order to cover all eventualities.

Cardiff City Complete Loan Deal For Liverpool's Marko Grujic

The Serbia U21 international, a product of the Red Star Belgrade academy, will go straight into Neil Warnock’s squad for their visit to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday. The 21-year old has made just eight appearances for Liverpool since becoming Jurgen Klopp’s first signing for £5.1m in January 2016.
