U23s to Host Palace in Friendly
Thursday, 7th Jan 2021 10:22

Town’s U23s will face Crystal Palace in a behind closed doors friendly at Playford Road on Saturday afternoon (KO 1pm).

The side coached by Kieron Dyer and Terry Butcher isn’t in league action until Monday 18th January when they visit Millwall, hence the addition of the game against the Eagles.

The U23s are currently second in Professional Development League Two South behind the Lions on goal difference but having played a game more.

Palace, who have a category one academy, are fourth in Premier League Two Division Two.

Run out for KVY and Downes?

I await the ‘pelters’ but how on earth can an under 23’s friendly be classified as an elite game?
In other words it shouldn’t be allowed to be played.
Decisions like this are not helping the control of Covid!

I'd like to think that we could use Dyer and Butcher's coaching skills to work with the first team players?
Surely players like McGuinness, Wolfy and Ndaba would benefit hugely from the legend that is Butch. It does make me wonder if and how we use the resources at our disposal, especially when you look at our bumbling first team that often look so poorly coached?

I'm not 100% sure this how this game is going ahead but lets just hope its been done with the intention of getting minutes into our injured lads.
KVY, Downes, Edwards, Norwood, Bishop, etc.... getting them back on any pitch will be a massive part of any chance we have this season.
