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.

Anger is Not a Good Emotion by TimS
I am starting to realise that as I grow older, I am harking back to a period of my life which seemed to be idyllic, but it probably was totally different in reality.
Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
