Morris On Target as U23s Win at Crewe
Monday, 23rd Aug 2021 14:03
Ben Morris scored his first goal for the U23s since January 2020 and Tawanda Chirewa and Cameron Humphreys netted in the final five minutes as the young Blues beat Crewe Alexandra 3-1 at Gresty Road this afternoon.
Morris, 22, playing only his second competitive game for the side managed by Kieron Dyer and Bryan Klug following his return from his second ACL injury, netted after 29 minutes to see Town into the lead.
However, the home side levelled through Max Woodcock in the 66th minute.
But Town weren’t to be denied their first victory of the season and on 85 Chirewa, who also scored in last week’s 2-1 home defeat to Coventry having also found the net regularly in pre-season, was found by Morris on the edge of the box and hit a shot on the turn into the corner of the net.
Midfielder Humphreys sealed the three points in the final minute with a 20-yard free-kick.
U23s: Bort, Alexander, Clements, Healy, Stewart, Armin, Ward (Curtis 59), Humphreys, Morris, Chirewa, Siziba (Nwabueze 76). Unused: Williamson, Andoh, Smith.

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues 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.
