U16s Win Hospital Cup on Penalties
Saturday, 11th May 2019 15:43
Town’s U16s beat Norwich City 8-7 on penalties to claim the Hospital Cup after a 2-2 draw at Portman Road this afternoon.
Keeper Antoni Bort, among this summer's intake of full-time scholars, netted the 11th and decisive Blues spot-kick having saved three Canaries penalties in a marathon shoot-out to end the Canaries’ run of four victories on the trot since the competition was revived as an annual academy friendly in 2015.
Harley Curtis gave the young Blues the lead from the penalty spot in the first half before the visitors levelled and then took the lead prior to Michael Bareck grabbing an injury time equaliser to take the game to penalties.
Town: Bort, Cutbush, Wyss, Alexander, Kabonlogo, Baggott, Curtis, Siziba, Bareck, Gibbs (c), Mesuria. Subs: Bello, Chierwa, Stephenson, Humphreys, Hoque.

Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
