Reward for his form this season says coach Gill

Town first-team coach Matt Gill says Flynn Downes has fully deserved the international recognition for his form this season.

The midfielder, along with Blues’ team-mate, Andre Dozzell, played the full 90 minutes in England U20s’ 2-2 draw in Italy.

It was Flynn’s third cap at that level and Matt told the Club website: “I’m chuffed for Flynn and Dozzer.

“Flynn has been fantastic for us this season and it’s great that he has got the international recognition for the way he has been playing.

“It was a great game for him and Dozzer to be involved with as well, against Italy away.  

“Flynn has played a lot of games this season so we will have to manage the load but every week he’s covering the most ground.”
