U18s Win at Everton in FA Youth Cup
Friday, 8th Dec 2017 20:56
Second-half goals from Ross Marshall (pictured) and Idris El Mizouni saw Town’s U18s to a 2-1 FA Youth Cup third round victory over Everton at Goodison Park.
Defender Marshall headed Alan Lee’s side in front in the 47th minute with El Mizouni adding the second with a low 20-yard drive on 65.
The home side pulled a goal back through Korede Adedoyin a minute after the Frenchman’s strike but the young Blues clung on to claim the win and a home tie against either Oxford United or Dagenham and Redbridge in round four.
The victory is a notable scalp for the young Blues with Everton flying high in second in the U18 Premier League North, while Town are eighth in the Professional Development League Two South.
Town have carried off the trophy on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and 2005.
U18s: Ware, McGavin (c), Marshall, Ndaba, Clements, D Crowe, El Mizouni, Foudil, Cahill, Dobra, Lankester.

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet
“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
