U18s Drop to Second After Blades Defeat
Sunday, 14th Apr 2019 23:43
Town’s U18s were beaten 4-0 by Sheffield United at Playford Road on Saturday afternoon and as a result dropped to second place in the Professional Development League Two South table with only their game in hand on new leaders Cardiff City left to play.
The Bluebirds completed their league fixtures with a 5-1 home victory over Burnley and currently have a two-point lead at the top of the table.
The side coached by Adem Atay and Kieron Dyer, which has already qualified for the end-of-season play-offs, will win the division if they defeat Crystal Palace away in their final league game of the season on Tuesday afternoon at Goals Beckenham (KO 1pm).
Meanwhile, Town's U23s end their table-topping Professional Development League Two South campaign with a home game against Nottingham Forest at Portman Road on Monday evening (KO 7pm).
U18s: Alley, O’Reilly, T Smith, Baker, Henderson, Clements, Ruffles, Foudil, Z Brown, Dobra, Simpson. Subs: Moore, Fehrenbach, Healy, Viral, Oppong.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
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.
