Congratulations To Our Performance Phase, Into Another Cup Final

Yesterday (February 13, 2018) saw the players come up against Haberdashers’ Adams in the Shropshire Under 18s County Cup semi-final, writes Steve Benyon.

A number of changes were made to provide players with vital game time, as well as an opportunity for myself and Simon (Smith) to have a look at players in preparation for the upcoming U19s fixtures and various cup games.

The players recovered well from a shaky start after conceding an early goal and went 3-1 up, through goals from Owen Williams, Oli Mitchell-Gough and Ismail Ozdemir, and held on until the half-time whistle, after the opposition scored another one just before the break.

The second-half saw the introduction of four players, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. A further four goals were added to the tally from Luis Edwards, Harley Steel and two from James Rutter, including a Cantona-type chip into the top left-hand corner, to see us win the game 7-2 and into yet another final, this time against Shrewsbury School.

Next up for the players is a home game against Newtown AFC in the FAW Welsh Premier Development League (North) on Sunday, February 17th, with a 2.00 p.m. kick-off.

Also a huge good luck to Harry Bower, who flies out to Italy on Sunday to represent England Colleges in an international tournament for the week.
