19s make it seven
U18 Academy South
Our Academy under-19 side made it seven games unbeaten with a 2-0 victory over Wimbledon on Saturday.
Two first half goals from Michael Malcolm settled the game and coach Pat Holland takes up the story...
"They worked really hard but, in fairness, I thought Wimbledon were a little bit unfortunate to go in at half-time 2-0 down.
"I thought they had the best of the half, but we scored in the last 15 minutes to go into the lead. It was good work by Andy Barcham to cut the ball back for Michael Malcolm who finished well.
"We then got a corner about two minutes before half-time and it was a good delivery from Jamie O'Hara - Michael came off the far post and headed the second goal in.
"At that stage I thought we were a bit lucky. There was quite a strong wind in their favour and I was hoping we'd capitalise on that, but it didn't materialise really.
"We kept working and both sides had a go, but the game peetered out a little bit towards the end."
