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Keeper Cody Cropper was withdrawn at the break, perhaps signalling that he could be involved in the reserves match against Colchester United on Wednesday afternoon.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.

A Reflection by paulthebluealien
I would love to be the one to say I told you so. But that is just rude, is it not?
Doom and Gloom – But Why? by paulthebluealien
It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.
Marcus Evans and Mr John by HarryfromBath
Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.

Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
