Town Forward Connor Wickham will join up with England's Under-17 squad for their clash against Sweden this weekend. The product of the Town academy will join up with his team-mates for the clash which will be held at Northamptons Sixfields Stadium and will therefore miss Town's game with Swansea this weekend.Confirming the news to ITFC.co.uk, Town boss Roy Keane said: "Connor is away for a week or so and we don't begrudge him that at all."He will only miss the Swansea game and it will be a good experience for him to be with boys of his own age as opposed to being against 30-year-olds."It will be a different set-up but if you are going to play at international level you have to get used to that. It's great for any of our players to play international football."
