U18s Thrashed By Colchester
Friday, 2nd Feb 2018 14:22 by Blair Ferguson
Town’s U18s suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of local rivals Colchester United, despite taking a first-half lead through Albert Wilton at a wet and windy Playford Road this morning.
The game started well for the young Blues, who were looking to bounce back from Tuesday's FA Youth Cup defeat to Blackpool, when Wilton headed in from a corner early in the first half, but two quick goals from Dean Ager and Callum Anderson had the visitors in front before Noah Chilvers got a third from a freekick just before the break.
The second 45 minutes got off to a bad start with Chilvers smashing in his second and Colchester’s fourth of the afternoon with Ollie Kensdale adding the fifth from a corner just after the half-hour mark to finish the scoring.
In a game that produced plenty of chances it was the visitors who had the first opportunity. Ager collected the ball on the right wing following a corner and sent the ball across the box, with Kensdale’s glancing header taking it wide of the left post.
Thomas Hughes put two hands in the air to signal a routine before placing the ball perfectly in to the near post for Wilton to head past Callum Coulter.

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet

New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
