GOOD WEEK FOR THE ACADEMY

22 March 2016

The U18's come through two tough away games unbeaten.

Last week the U18's headed to Huish Park, for a fixture against Yeovil Town. The Academy included a number of players who were chosen to play above their age group to cover injuries and impressed by winning the game 3-1. Two goals from midfielder Rhys Kavanagh and a goal from defender Ben Jones secured the victory for the Exiles' youngsters.

On Tuesday the U18's faced a long-trip to Peterborough, and thanks to a Corey Sheppard goal, the Academy came away with a creditable 1-1 draw. 

Academy Manager, Byron Anthony, praised the players efforts over the past week, "We have produced fantastic performance in both games and the players have played with a great intensity and worked extremely hard for the whole game."

He added, "The players have showed a great attitude since I have taken over."
