Town’s U18s’ unbeaten run came to an abrupt halt as they were defeated 5-1 by Sheffield Wednesday at Playford Road this morning, however, the young Blues remain top of Professional Development League Two South.
Matt Ward scored Town’s goal to bring the score to 2-1 midway through the second half but the visitors netted three more times.
The side coached by Adem Atay and Jason Dozzell, which was missing a number of its regulars, had been unbeaten in nine - eight wins and a draw - stretching back to October. They remain top of the table but with their lead down to two points.

Stewart, 18, a second-year scholar, joined the Blues from Linfield in the summer of 2019.
U18s: Ridd, Agbaje, Stephenson, Stewart, Bradshaw, Knock (Hoque 75), Cutbush, Chirewa, Bareck (Osbourne 57), Bello (Nwabueze 71), Ward. Unused: Bort, Moodie.

Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
