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.

The Best PM in My Life by essexccc
Being born in 1957, I think I have lived through the leadership of 12 Prime Ministers. I don't know which of them I regard as the best, although I regard the current one, the amoral, lying and self-seeking one, as without doubt, the worst.

The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
