U16s Win Hospital Cup on Penalties
Saturday, 11th May 2019 15:43
Town’s U16s beat Norwich City 8-7 on penalties to claim the Hospital Cup after a 2-2 draw at Portman Road this afternoon.
Keeper Antoni Bort, among this summer's intake of full-time scholars, netted the 11th and decisive Blues spot-kick having saved three Canaries penalties in a marathon shoot-out to end the Canaries’ run of four victories on the trot since the competition was revived as an annual academy friendly in 2015.
Harley Curtis gave the young Blues the lead from the penalty spot in the first half before the visitors levelled and then took the lead prior to Michael Bareck grabbing an injury time equaliser to take the game to penalties.
Town: Bort, Cutbush, Wyss, Alexander, Kabonlogo, Baggott, Curtis, Siziba, Bareck, Gibbs (c), Mesuria. Subs: Bello, Chierwa, Stephenson, Humphreys, Hoque.

Town have finally dropped through the beckoning trapdoor – but who to blame? Rev Evans with the peeling candlestick? Colonel McCarthy with the fraying rope? Captain Keane with the poisoned dart? Professor Paul with his own interpretation of chaos theory?
