Tom collects another cap

11 September 2012

Shrewsbury Town striker Tom Bradshaw returned to the international stage when he came off the bench to play the last half-hour for Wales under-21s in the Czech Republic last night.
 
Tom's sixth cap at this level did not go as well as he would have hoped as Wales ended their Uefa Under-21 Championship qualifying campaign with a comprehensive 5-0 defeat to the group winners.
 
Bradshaw replaced Swansea's Gwion Edwards on the hour mark but had little chance to make an impact as the Czech's produced a dominant display.
 
Shrewsbury manager Graham Turner was pleased to see Bradshaw play some part after he was an unused substitute for the last under-21 international at home to Armenia last month.
 
"He's had a bit of game time," he said. "I saw the Wales under-21s play the Czech Republic at Wrexham last year and they were technically very good so it doesn't surprise me that sort of scoreline took place.
 
"It is good experience for him and it hasn't inconvenienced us in any way. 
 
"Sometimes you get to the stage when it's international week and we can lose players for a match or two.
 
"But in this case he was able to join up with Wales after the game at Notts County and obviously we were pleased that he got some game time."
