U18s Draw at Fulham
Sunday, 13th Feb 2011 21:24
Town’s U18s recovered from going two goals down to draw 2-2 at Fulham on Saturday morning. Josh Carson (pictured) and Jidé Maduako were on target for the Blues.
After conceding around the half-hour mark and going into the break one goal down, Town defender Rory McKeown then conceded a penalty on the hour which the Cottagers converted.
However, Northern Ireland U21 international midfielder Josh Carson pulled a goal back 10 minutes later as Town hit the hosts on the break, the 17-year-old hitting a superb shot from 30 yards that flew into the net.
And with 10 minutes remaining, centre-back Jidé Maduako equalised with a header from a corner to secure a point for Town’s youngsters.
Keeper Cody Cropper was withdrawn at the break, perhaps signalling that he could be involved in the reserves match against Colchester United on Wednesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Town’s U16s secured a 3-2 victory, also at Fulham.
U18s: Cropper (O’Donnell 46), Bennett, Whight, Jones, Meekings, McKeown (Maduako 60), Winter, Scotcher, Tiofack (Lawrence 75), Carson and Burke. Unused: Simmons and Acott.

With the walk out of some Liverpool supporters last weekend and the news that Liverpool FC are scrapping the now infamous £77 ticket, is there about to be a sea change in the way supporters are treated?
Money Doesn't Guarantee Success? by wadey
Due to all the arguments about not spending money on players and other people saying 'spending doesn't guarantee success', I decided to do some research. I've looked at every club that has been promoted since we were relegated in 2002.
Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22
As one of the greatest leaders in Premier League history announces he is leaving English football a the end of the season, I think it appropriate to pay tribute to our very own Captain Fantastic.
Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans? by itfcjoe
As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
