U18s Draw at Fulham
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Keeper Cody Cropper was withdrawn at the break, perhaps signalling that he could be involved in the reserves match against Colchester United on Wednesday afternoon.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.

I love the names of some of the lads in this generation: Jidé Maduako, Carel Tiofack, Elliot Scotcher, Cody Cropper, David October, Josh Meekings, Caolan Lavery... Very entertaining.

Maduako is even more impressive as he's able to score without being on the teamsheet ;-)

Thanks for the update on the match and well done the lads
arc; The names would look even better on a multi million pound contract, but the money gets spent just as easily, even with an 'ordinary' name like mine !
