Boss on the emergence of Tristan and Flynn

Mick McCarthy says the emergence of Flynn Downes and Tristan Nydam has given the players and coaching staff a boost.

The duo have impressed since breaking into the first-team this season and have been rewarded with a call-up to the England U19 squad.

“We’re obviously delighted to see Tristan and Flynn receive their call-ups and rightly so. If there are better players in that squad than those two, I’d be surprised,” the Town boss told iFollow.  

“I recognised their ability the first time I saw them about 18 months ago. They weren’t ready for the first-team then. They are ready now and they have shown that.

“I think we have all been enthused by the two. When you see a young player begin to come through and develop, it’s exciting to see and even more so when there are two of them!

"It’s great for the Academy obviously but it’s great for the Club as well. They know they have got a long way to go yet but they are in the right environment to learn and they both have the desire to do that.”
