TNS Academy Share Spoils with Urawa Reds

The TNS FC Scholars and members of the TNS Under 16’s played in two very intense and high quality games against Uwra Reds from Japan at Park Hall Stadium.

The boys were split into two squads allowing all the players to play in their favoured positions as well as giving Steve Benyon, Steve Evans and Scott Ruscoe a chance to assess the squads for next season, as well as for the remaining games both for the Under 19’s and Under 16’s.

The first game was a fantastic game of football, with the TNS boys securing a 3-2 victory. A huge well done to Izaack Lambert, Josh Baldwin, Owen Hough and Jack Jones, who performed superbly well and didn’t look out of place at all.

Jack managed to score two goals which added to an excellent headed goal from Tom Ash.

Uwra Reds scored a well worked team goal, as well as a super free-kick right at the death.

The squad consisted of; Andy Wycherley, Matt Perry, Izaack Lambert, James Jones, Lee Killen, Fiz Hajdari, Greg Evans, Cal Graybrook, Harrison Millington, Paul Mesham, Tom Ash, Josh Baldwin, Owen Hough, Jack Jones and Mark Murch.

The second game again was a fantastic match, with the reds managing to secure a 2-0 victory.

Again, the visitors managed to score two very well worked goals, but we had numerous changes to score.

A huge well done to Mike Owen, Illan Davies, Owen Hough and Matt Williams for playing and again didn’t look out of place.

The squad consisted of Andy Wycherley, Matt Williams, Jack Parsons, Mike Owen, Matt Price, Kyle Ferriday, Mark Murch, Illan Davies, Ollie Edwards, Josh Baldwin, Ross Tyler, Rhys Hinton, Greg Fletcher, Jase Glennerster and Owen Hough.

Finally, a huge thank you to Alan Keeling and Uwra Reds for ensuring that these excellent games were played.
