U23s Come From Behind to Beat Charlton
Monday, 29th Mar 2021 16:02
Second-half goals from Armando Dobra and Levi Andoh saw Town’s U23s come from behind to beat Charlton 2-1 at Dartford’s Princes Park this afternoon.
Mason Burstow gave the Addicks the lead in the ninth minute but Dobra levelled 10 minutes after the break and Andoh completed the turnaround with 20 minutes remaining.
Keeper David Cornell and striker Oli Hawkins, who was back on the first-team bench at the weekend following knee surgery, started along with Dobra and Tristan Nydam, who is continuing his comeback from his lengthy absence due to an ankle injury.
Manager Paul Cook said at the weekend that he and first-team coach Gary Roberts would be making the trip to watch the match.
“There’s an U23s game at Charlton on Monday, we’ll be very strong,” he said. “Myself and Gary, we’ll all be there watching the lads, it’s an opportunity to impress.”
Young Needham Market midfielder Callum Page again featured as he continues his lengthy trial.
The young Blues, who are coached by Kieron Dyer and Terry Butcher, remain second in Professional Development League Two South behind leaders Bristol City.
U23s: Cornell, Crowe, Andoh, Armin, Clements, Alexander, Nydam, Page, Dobra, Crane, Hawkins. Subs: Bort, Oppong, Humphreys, Z Brown, Simpson.

One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
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.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
From Marcus's Side of the Fence by essexccc
Most of the thinking, including my own, around the possible sale of the club, has quite naturally focused on the possibilities from the club's and supporters' points of view.
