Birmingham trip for youth team
The youth team, after two weeks without a game, drew at home to lowly Bolton Wanderers last week but will be looking to get moving up the table tomorrow with a visit to Birmingham City.
We’ve slipped down to eighth in the eleven team northern group of the U18 Professional Development League but we do have games in hand on all but one of the teams and we are within striking distance of going ahead of the next three, albeit two of them play each other tomorrow.
Under-16 goalkeeper Sam Waller made his debut last week, a debut that saw him save a penalty. Of the two scholars, Lewis Thomas wasn’t involved and Harry Allen (pictured) had just joined Curzon Ashton on loan where he made his debut during the afternoon.
Allen’s stay at the Tameside Stadium was a short lived one and he’s back in the fold and expected to take his place in goal tomorrow for the game against opponents Birmingham who are currently one place and three points below us having won just twice in their eight games to date.
It is exactly two years since we first played them away in this league. We were beaten 3-2 with our goals scored by Tristan Jumeau and Kian Yari. A year ago it was the young Clarets who took the points with a 3-1 win. Ne-Jai Tucker scored the first goal with Matty O’Neill netting the third after we’d benefited from an own goal.
Kick off tomorrow is 12 noon at Birmingham’s Trillion Trophy Training Centre.Share this page :
