Frustrating night for Town's Welsh duo

16 August 2012

Both Bradshaw and Doble unused subs for Welsh U21s

It was a frustrating night for young Shrewsbury Town strikers Tom Bradshaw and Ryan Doble as Wales under-21s were beaten 1-0 by Armenia at Wrexham's Racecourse Ground.
Wales were not helped by having a man sent off in the first half, with Tom and Ryan unused substitutes as they missed out on the chance to add to their collection of international caps.
They will now hope to play a part when Wales continue their UEFA European under-21 qualifier with an away game against the Czech Republic next month.
Bradshaw said: "It was good experience again going away with the lads and just being involved in the set up.
"Me and Dobes were hoping to get on on but it wasn't to be. There was a sending off in the first couple of minutes which ended with one of the strikers being brought off for a centre back."
The 20-year-old striker stressed he enjoying working with new Wales under-21 coach Geraint Williams for the first time and was impressed with him.
"He's a really nice man first and foremost, a really good coach and manager," he said. "I'm looking forward to working with him in the future.
"The next game is next month against the Czech Republic away. We won't miss any Shrewsbury games and it will be hard out there as they're the best side in our group by a bit but it will be a great experience again."
Bradshaw, who made a late appearance as a sub at Leeds United in the Capital One Cup last weekend, is now excited about the start of the League One season for Shrewsbury at Sheffield United on Saturday.
"I'm so looking forward to the season especially with such a big fixture on Saturday," he added. "You probably couldn't get a bigger fixture in the league than Sheffield United away.
"We're all confident we can pick up a result. You can't go into games not confident because we've got belief in our team so why can't we go there and pick up three points?"
