U23s Draw at Wigan
Monday, 19th Apr 2021 13:27

Town’s U23s were denied victory by a penalty three minutes into injury time as they drew 1-1 away against Wigan Athletic at Christopher Park this lunchtime, a very youthful Blues side - only Liam Gibbs and Tyreece Simpson had league experience - having gained the lead with 10 minutes left on the clock.

However, deep in time added-on Tom Costello was brought down by Blues keeper Bert White and Sean McGurk converted from the spot.

The Town youngsters, who are coached by Kieron Dyer and Terry Butcher, are now eight points behind Professional Development League Two South leaders Bristol City, who have played a game fewer than the Blues, meaning the Robins can't now be caught and are win the division.

Town are four points ahead of third-placed Watford, the Hornets and the Blues having played the same number of fixtures, with the top two qualifying for the end-of-season play-offs.

Again included in the Town side was young Needham Market midfielder Callum Page, who is continuing his lengthy trial.

Town: White, Alexander, Andoh, Armin, Clements, Page (Bradshaw 83), Healy (Oppong 55), Gibbs, Crane (Cutbush 55), Ward, Simpson. Unused: Bort.

Liam Gibbs should be with the first team. This lad creates and scores goals something we need. Perhaps its because he hasnt signed a new deal yet.

Why are there regional divisions when we play sides in the North anyway?
