Ward on Target as U23s Draw at Braintree
Tuesday, 27th Jul 2021 22:45

Matt Ward was on target for the Blues’ U23s as the drew 1-1 away at Braintree Town.

Luke Holness gave the home side the lead before Ward, who caught the eye with his cameo display off the bench in Saturday’s home friendly against Crystal Palace, struck back for Town early in the second half, bursting into the area and shooting into the roof of the net.

Flynn Downes and Brett McGavin were again among those starting but Myles Kenlock was not involved.

Striker Ben Morris continued his return from his second cruciate knee ligament injury which he suffered last summer.

U23s: White (Ridd), Andoh (Agbaje), Armin, McGavin (c), Smith, Baggott, Ward (Crane), Downes, Morris (Bello), Chirewa (Barbrook), Siziba (Page).

Ward replaced himself off the bench! (Presumably a different player with the same surname.) Good to see Morris played some more minutes too.

Hoping Ben Morris can break into our first team one day. Has a lot of potential.

Matt Ward looks a player with great potential could be the surprise package of the season. Cannot understand the obsession with El Mizouni seems to have been at the club for years and like a lot of players has not lived up to the hype. Downes is not doing a lot to suggest he wants to stay and fight for his place or win over potential buyers.

I agree there's a lot of players that haven't moved up to next level. If they don't make an impression then can see quite a few being loaned out.
Good to hear that Ward isn't one of them and hope he gets a chance in the cup games.

It always seemed quite pointless having all these players that we just loan out and never play in our team, I guess the idea is to put them in the shop window. It almost feels at this club we hear a name enough times and we grow attached to them, even though almost none of academy players have left and proven us wrong in the past few years.
