Morris Nets But U23s Lose at Forest
Monday, 13th Mar 2017 21:25

Ben Morris netted his 12th goal of the season but the Blues’ U23s were beaten 3-1 by a more experienced Nottingham Forest side at Alfreton Town’s Impact Arena.

Mustapha Carayol put the home side in front in the 28th minute but Morris, who is on loan at Woking but still available for the U23s, levelled for Gerard Nash’s side six minutes later after good work from Ben Folami.

Forest won it in the second half via goals from Joao Teixeira on 61 and Yassine En-Neyah in the 67th minute.

Forest U23s: Evtimov, Charlesworth, Lam, Ahmedhodzic, Iacovitti, Ariyibi, Edser, Tshibola, Carayol (En-Neyah. 63), Teixeira, Vellios (Gomis 80). Unused: J Wright, A Smith, Crookes.

Town U23s: Crowe, Woolfenden (Salaudeen 10), Nydam, Blanchfield (McGavin 84), C Smith, Webber, McKendry, McDonnell, Morris, Dozzell, Folami. Unused: Hayes, Ndaba, Daniels.

A striker scoring goals. May aswell terminate his contract now if he's not a 'proper bloke'

I thought Morris was on loan at Woking?

@CaptainAhab you missed this bit in the report "Morris, who is on loan at Woking but still available for the U23s"

Considering how young our team was it wasa pretty good effort. Looks like MM is looking at more players for w/end. Maybe Bish and Williams will be on teamsheet!

Pilgrimblue.They have both been injured;so don't know if they are available?

Morris would have been given a go by a lot of Managers by now;but as our esteemed manager Mr McCarthy has said that he wont put in any youngsters until we are safe from relegation,it looks at though we will not see any of them this season?

I say this because under his stewardship we are drifting slowly towards the bottom of the table,from whence we had come four and a third years ago.Meanwhile Mr Evans does his impression of Nero,fiddling whilst ITFC burns/sinks?

Many of the under 23s pushing towards a run out in the first team. The football this season has been outstanding at times. Some gifted, hard working and technically gifted set of players.
