Marriott Nets Hat-Trick as U18s Beat Cardiff
Saturday, 23rd Mar 2013 15:03
Striker Jack Marriott netted a hat-trick as Town's U18s beat Cardiff 4-2 at a snowy Playford Road this morning.
It was Marriott’s fourth hat-trick of the season and third against Welsh opposition, the two U18s games against Swansea earlier in the season having both yielded triples, along with the home victory over Barnet at U21 level in September.
Russell Osman's boys, playing their final home game of the season, went in front via Marriott in the 28th minute.
The striker, who is one of the five second-year academy scholars to have been offered a one-year professional deal, made it 2-0 six minutes later.
Schoolboy Matthew Clarke, who netted the winner for the U21s against Millwall last week, hit the bar with a header soon afterwards, then created Town's third, a Bluebirds defender turning his cross past his own keeper in the 43rd minute.
Two minutes later, Marriott completed his hat-trick from Kyle Hammond's cross from the right.
The Welsh side pulled a goal back from the penalty spot just before the break after a foul by George Fowler, then added another during the second half.
Town's U21s are in action away against their Cardiff counterparts on Monday afternoon (KO 1pm).
U18s: Crowe, Hammond (Thompson 69), Fowler, Sowunmi, Robinson, Berkane, Willbye, Leddy, Clarke (Bishop 69), Lawrence (Timlin 69), Marriott. Unused: Marsden, Ramadan.

Nowhere Fast by Mullet
"Some people can f**k off," was mouthed right out of our very own small corner of Yorkshire. A sentiment as Yorkshire as the tea and a certain type of famously advertised bread.
So This is Me ... by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so this is me – 50 years old, living in Poole, Dorset and only getting to three games this season (hey, that’s 50% on last year!). Do I have a right to join in the discussions here, or should I keep quiet and listen to the experts?
Pig Tales - An Old Story Brought Bang Up to Date by roysboys
Once Upon a Time, not very long ago, not far away, there was country town with a problem, a big problem. The Town was called PigSwich and in the town there was a wonderful stydium in PigMan Road and no matter how well the locals built their stydium it kept getting battered by the local wolves who kicked balls at it and knocked it down.
Are English Football Clubs Becoming Just Global Consumer Brands (And What Are the Implications)? by AndrewPC
Back in 2010/11 I spent quite a bit of time in SE Asia, particularly Malaysia. As an expat, a retreat to the many available sports bars provided great access to live Premier League football in the evening (the time difference to the UK meant that games start to be shown around 22:00 hours) plus the not unpleasant possibility of imbibing some brews.

I posted an item under the story headlined 'Taylor: Hewitt “Superb”' this morning and unbelievably I didn't receive an avalanche of negatives.
