I only saw the goals but they could have been first team goals from the way they were built up. Only the slightness of the players gave it away that it was an U18 game.
Clearly the 'School of Science' that we have through the age groups into the first team is embedded.

Well played boys, hope you get a big draw in an PL stadium in R4.

That’s Chris McPhee - he’s Head Coach of the Under 16s so knows the lads playing well and has inside track on our great Academy.
If we can keep the current coaching team we will produce consistent future players who can all play the way the first team plays.
Well done Raddy & Taggy for your foresight all those years ago.

Argyle and Cheltenham were complete and utter nonentities compared to this Bournemouth team. This was an absolutely stunning performance and victory, probably as good as anything ever produced by an ECFC youth team.
It was a hard fought victory, I enjoyed it. Must be remembered that Bournemouth are in the same Youth Alliance League (currently top) as City so I wouldn't go as far to say stunning as AFCB haven't used their PL time build an elite academy or anything.

Hope to see an interesting draw in the 4th round, a round we've rarely made at this level.
