Shaw in England Under-18 squad

Luke Shaw

Luke Shaw

First published in Sport

Saints defender Luke Shaw has been named in the England Under-18 squad for the first time.

The 17-year-old left back has been included by head coach Noel Blake for a friendly against Italy later this month.

Shaw has featured for both the under-16 and under-17 national sides, but has now been stepped up a level.

He was promoted to the Saints first-team during the summer and has made one appearance so far this season, in the 4-1 Capital One Cup win at Stevenage.

England will face Italy at Mansfield Town on Wednesday, October 24.

Talking of SAINTS England full international full backs i must mention.Bill Ellerington who kept one Sir Alf Ramsey out of the Saints side at one time.Of course Alf himself went on to play for England after moving to Spurs.Other SAINTS fullbacks who played for the England full international team were MICK MILLS and DEREK STATHAM.
Does anybody rember the Sheffield United fullback GRAHAM SHAW who played for England.He had a younger brother Bernard Shaw who also played fulback for Sheff.UTD and later Wolves.Bernard Shaw played in the same England Youth team as Chopper Harris who we have been talking about on another thread.Also in the same England squad was a flying winger from west ham called HARRY REDKNAPP.Does anybody know what happened to him.

Never heard of Harry Redknapp but Bernard Shaw went on to write some famous plays including Pygmalion which was adapted in to a musical called My Fair Lady. There is a character in the play called Higgins who eventually became a famous snooker player. And I have to say I had forgotten about Chopper Harris - who of course left a trail of broken shins and a famous 70s kids' bicycle in his wake.

That doesn't surprise me. Alan Sheaer said the other day that Chelsea are the closest the Premier League has to Barcelona. He more than anyone should know Southampton are a good 80 miles closer.

One less saint in Spain? Time to send back an Armada!

I used to live in Singapore. The saints/pompey rivalry was well represented there too, and usually in a positive -- but very competitive -- spirit.

I notice your blue crew is openly calling for appleton's head on the new website. Good luck with that, to be fair I think 'appy has gotten away with a lot by hiding behind the cloak of administration. Decent man, no doubt, but very 'appy unlucky. And a good manager makes his own luck.

If you are lucky appleton will go to Bolton. I suspect, given your wretched run, that he will stay.

That's a fair point. But I do think they'd be better off with a former player in charge or lower league hard man.

In a way we were lucky to get pardew (not so lucky for Jose) and astute to get Adkins.

But Pompey, with no money and no owne at the moment, aren't in a position to get anyone on board for a while.

I still remember the crap Pompey fans gave us when some suggested saints, cherries (sn) and Brighton fans coming to a game in colors to show solidarity, so maybe this is karma.

In a begrudging sort of way I do think he did amazingly well to scrape two draws against us last season. And given he had to start his recruitment for this season pretty much from scratch as the season started after he found his budget was going to be less than he thought and he wouldn't actually be able to offer anyone contracts I think he's doing ok.

I can't see how Bolton will be blown away by this, but for Pompey he's been a godsend.

So thinking about it, it would be amazing if Bolton gave him a job. He's the one man keeping them afloat.

Went there once to see Saints (under 'Arry) lose on a Wednesday evening in the League Cup. (That was one hell of a cr4p season).

I'd like to sound all stoic at this point and ramble on about how I had to take the afternoon off work, slog through London at rush hour, find the only connection out of Derby, miss the start in the dash, then see us lose before missing the last train back and having to grab an expensive taxi all the way home, making me several hundred quid out of pocket.

Truth is, I just happened to be in the area that week and was but a local bus journey away.

Where is it? Look it up yourself you lazy journo.
