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Keeper Cody Cropper was withdrawn at the break, perhaps signalling that he could be involved in the reserves match against Colchester United on Wednesday afternoon.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

Season Preview by tractordownsouth
Just like every season, we made our pre-season predictions last summer and just like every season we were wrong. Giants fell, minnows prospered and ten managers were axed, the pressure of returning their club to the financial utopia of the Premier League so great that the board of directors were ruthless and often reckless.
A Lack of Spending Will Curtail Progress by Nuggets
At a time when Fulham have just spent £11m on a striker with no Premiership experience, it's a little disconcerting to see Mick McCarthy announce that the club are relying on freebies and borrowed players once again this term.
Where Do Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
The transfer window is barely open and the club isn't so much gently sucking in the fresh air of inevitable squad change, but blowing out the cobwebs with gusts of activity.
At All Costs? by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so Luis Suarez is an amazing football player. But for his return to fitness and brilliance we might still be in the World Cup! ('might' is a big word).
