Because I'm a glutton for punishment, over the last five days I have watched both Wales v Ireland and Wales v Bulgaria on S4C, and been impressed by Tyler Roberts (14 games, 0 goals, 2016/17 season) in both matches. Even with my average Welsh, I could fathom the commentators being equally glowing - "Mor pwysig i'r tîm" ("So important to the team") - even if his goal threat has hardly been stellar. I believe he's the first former U to play for Wales since Sam Ricketts.

Adam Murray promoted to first team coach at Barnsley according to the Football League Paper.
Murray apparently caretaker manager / head coach now after departure of Daniel Stendel.

My local rag will report tomorrow that former U (and willy-waver) Gavin Whyte will take a loan move to Hull City after struggling to get into the Cardiff City side since Neil Harris took over from Neil Warnock.
