Return to action for youths
After a weekend with no game to end October, the youth team are back in action tomorrow morning with a home game against Blackpool.
It’s a tough fixture against a Blackpool side beaten only once this season who could go top of the league if they were to win their two games in hand. As it stands, they have 16 points from seven games which leaves them in fourth place with all of Walsall, Accrington and Bury above them having played more games than the Seasiders.
Having said that, although we’d played two games more than them, a Burnley win would see us moving ahead of them in the table, but as always, much will depend on how strong a team Burnley field. Again this week a number of the youth squad have played in the development squad game and that often means us fielding some under-16 players in the Youth Alliance League.
We failed to beat Blackpool last season. We lost the away game in September 3-1 with Khius Metz scoring the Burnley goal and in February were held to a 0-0 draw in the home game.
Our last win against them in the Youth Alliance League came on Saturday 9th August 2014 in the first game of the season. Played at Padiham FC, the Clarets won 2-0 with goals from Christian Hill (pictured) and Ntumba Massanka.
Kick off tomorrow morning at Gawthorpe is 11 a.m.Share this page :
