U18s Thrash Colchester
Saturday, 1st Dec 2018 16:44
Town’s U18s returned to winning form by thrashing Colchester United 6-3 at Playford Road this morning.
The young Blues, without a win in their previous two games, went in front via trialist Ross Crane, a former U’s youngster, in the sixth minute, Armando Dobra (pictured) netted the second from the spot on 27 and Idris El Mizouni added the third in the 35th minute to make it 3-0 at the break.
Dobra scored his second of the game 11 minutes into the second half, Tommy Hughes scored the fifth on 61 and Bailey Clements Town’s sixth 16 minutes from time with the U’s also grabbing three in the second period.
The U18s are in action at Portman Road on Tuesday when they face non-league Andover Town’s youngsters in the third round of the FA Youth Cup (KO 7pm).
U18s: Egan, Ronan, Clements, Vega, T Smith, Crane, Scott, El Mizouni (Healey 46), Dobra (Henderson 57), K Brown (O’Reilly 46), Hughes. Unused: Alley, Simpson.

Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
