” 1 Hull’s Tom Ince Steve Bruce says the signings of Tom Ince and Andrew Robertson signify the fresh direction the club is going in. Ince, 22, joined the Tigers on a free transfer following his release from Blackpool last month and Bruce believes the former Liverpool trainee is destined for a bright future, along with 20-year-old Andrew Robertson, after their Premier League opener against QPR. “We’ve made a conscious effort to bring in some good young players.” Bruce said. “Tom could have scored again [last Saturday], he could have scored two against Stuttgart.
He needs to be a bit more clinical which he’ll learn but he’s young and when you’ve got a young player you have to make allowances.” Bruce, who sees blooding youth as a priority at the KC Stadium, was also full of praise for newcomer Robertson, following a promising first start in the Premier League since his ?2.85million move from Dundee United last month. “I thought he was terrific. Two years ago he was playing for Queens Park – he’s had a meteoric rise.
For a 20-year-old to play on his debut like that, he’s going to be a good player.” ” ” 1 New England Under-21 coach Gareth Southgate Gareth Southgate has been appointed the new head coach of the England Under-21 team, the Football Association has announced.

Since retiring as a player I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience of the game both here and abroad, and I’m eager to play my part in preparing players to compete at the highest level. “Whenever any team steps onto the pitch for England, being successful is of huge importance, but it is also about developing a clear style of play that can allow our talented young players to flourish.” And Ashworth added “I look forward to working with Gareth. He came through a comprehensive and thorough interview process, showing a real understanding of our need to ensure a consistency in the style of play across the England development teams at every level. “Gareth shares our belief that now is an important moment for English football. It is the time for change and his ideas and experience will be crucial to the direction we wish to take the development teams in the future.” “
