Danny Coyne Called Up For Wales Squad!

GRIMSBY 'keeper Danny Coyne, who has been winning rave notices for his displays this season, has won a recall to the Wales squad for the first time in five years. Wales manager Mark Hughes has named four 'keepers including Coyne for Wales' World Cup qualifier against Belarus in Cardiff on Oct 6.

Coyne, voted Grimsby's player of the year last season, has previously played for the B team, the Under-21s and Wales youth team but has won just one full cap when he played 45 minutes in a 2-0 defeat to Switzerland in Lugano in April 1996.

His inclusion is the only change in Hughes' squad from the one which lost 3-2 in Norway last month.

This is a great boost for Coyne and the Grimsby Town fans who have been campaigning for Coyne to get a call up for the Welsh team. Many subscribers to The Fishy sent emails to Mark Hughes reminding him of Coyne's performances for the Mariners.

With Grimsby's brilliant start to the season it appears that Coyne who has figured greatly in the games so far could no longer be ignored and he has earned his reward.
