U18s Win at Bildeston
Saturday, 21st Sep 2019 18:45 by James Ager
A young Town U18 side progressed to the second round of the CNet Training Suffolk FA Senior Cup with a 1-0 win at Bildeston Rangers on Saturday afternoon.
Coach Adem Atay, who was only registered to play during the week, named himself as the only Blues sub with the club unable to use any players who had appeared in the midweek defeat at Needham Market in the Suffolk Premier Cup.
The Blues scored what proved to be the winner two minutes after the break when a good cross from Nyan Mesuria on the right was volleyed in from close range by Harley Curtis (pictured).
On 78 Town defender Louie Fehrenbach got back well to divert Daryl Alexander's effort onto his own bar before the ball was cleared to safety, five minutes before Matt Healy released Ola Bello at the other end and the striker's looped effort rebounded off the woodwork.
U18s: Bort, Wyss, Alexander, Healy, Fehrenbach, Baggott, Clifford, Baker, Curtis, Mesuria, Bello. Unused: Atay.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
