Paul Jewell hopes Elliott Hewitt could make first start for Under-21s

ELLIOTT Hewitt, Ipswich Town’s first signing of the summer, could finally get his first run out in a Blues shirt tomorrow.

The newly-formed Under-21s side face Cardiff City at their Playford Road training ground (11am ko).

In what should be a strong Town side, due to the international break, Hewitt’s appearance – following his hip injury – would be the most eagerly-awaited.

The 18-year-old returned to training last week and Jewell admitted: “Hopefully we can get some good training out of him and he is pencilled in for the Under-21s against Cardiff.

“He’s worked exceptionally hard since we’ve signed him.”
