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.

Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
