U18s Visit Hillsborough for Play-Off on Saturday
Wednesday, 24th Apr 2019 17:26
Town’s U18s will take on Sheffield Wednesday in their Professional Development League Two play-off semi-final at Hillsborough on Saturday morning (KO 11am).
The young Blues, who are coached by Adem Atay and Kieron Dyer, finished second in the South division, while the Owls topped the North section.
The game will be the first of two Town matches in Sheffield on Saturday with the first team facing the Blades later in the afternoon at Bramall Lane (KO 5.15pm). Cardiff City, who won the South division host Leeds in the other semi-final.
Meanwhile, four Blues academy players, Ben Wyss, Elkan Baggott, Harley Curtis and Colin Oppong, who joined the Town academy in January, guested for Tottenham’s U17s at the ABN Amro Future Cup in Amsterdam over the weekend where the Spurs youngsters finished sixth.
Town, whose head of coaching and player development Bryan Klug was formerly assistant academy manager and head of player development at Tottenham, have previously lent Spurs young players for other summer games when they have found their squad stretched.
In 2017 Ben Knight, Zak Brown, Nyan Mesuria and Liam Gibbs played for the North Londoners at an U15s tournament in San Diego, while back in 2013 Andre Dozzell, Chris Smith and Sam Ford played in a post-season friendly against Cambridge United.

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.
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.
