U18s Beat QPR
Saturday, 23rd Feb 2019 23:05 by James Ager

A young Town U18 side recorded an impressive 1-0 victory against Queens Park Rangers at Playford Road on Saturday morning with Zak Brown netting in the first half.

With manager Adem Atay away in Spain on a coaching course, U23s assistant Chris Hogg joined his U18s counterpart Kieron Dyer in the dugout, and they named three U16s in the starting XI.

One of those, Liam Gibbs, teed Brown up for his match-winning goal in the 22nd minute. The former played the ball across the box and Brown cut in from the right-hand side and finished well with his left foot.

Both teams ended up finishing the match with ten men - Tommy Smith limped off injured with five minutes remaining with the Blues having already used all three subs, before the visitors' captain Joseph Gubbins was shown a second yellow card in stoppage time after he fouled Zanda Siziba.

U18s: Alley, Wyss, Smith, Baker (Bello 82) Fehrenbach, Henderson, Ruffles (Clifford 75), Alexander, Z Brown, Gibbs, Simpson (Siziba 68). Unused: Bort, Baggott.

Fantastic result from such a young team. Gibbs pass to Brown was excellent and Brown finished well. Henderson was superb at the heart of the defence. Well done lads thoroughly enjoyed the match.

This was truly a great team performance. The team played very well indeed against a very physical QPR side. Very well done to the school boys Wyss. Alexander and Gibbs the future is really looking good if we can continue to develop these young lads through the academy. Well done Bryan and your team. One of the best team performances I have seen this season from the u18's. The lads worked tirelessly.

Fantastic result and agree with the young lads coming through and being given the opportunity to play is a credit to the coaching staff and the boys themselves. Very determined young group with the likes of Gibbs Brown Alexander the future is bright. Just have to get these youngsters on deals and stop the big clubs coming in and taking them.

A team of all first year scholars and 3 school boys this is a very very good result. Agree FAcup78 Henderson was my M.O.M followed by Gibbs who I watched closely. Gibbs technical ability was second to none today and his pass to Brown was beyond his years. The team had a fantastic togetherness against a team that were powerful. Well done to you all.
