18s in the FA Youth Cup TONIGHT!!!!!

1 year ago By Glen Wilkinson

The Under 18s go into battle this evening at Catons Lane where they will be entertaining Brightlingsea Regent in the FA YOUTH CUP KO. 7.45pm

Mike Riccio's impressive Under 18 squad go into the FA Youth Cup 1st Qualifying Round on the back of 2 wins.

They will be hoping to repeat the impressive football they have been playing recently under the watchful eye of 1st Team Gaffer Stuart Wardley (Sticko) who is always present whenever the 18s or Reserves have a midweek fixture.

The club will be expecting another impressive turn out of supporters and urge them to get behind the young Bloods so they can progress into the next round.

Riccio said in anticipation of the game. "Im looking forward to it, the players know their roles and they simply get on with things which sometimes just gives us the luxury of sitting back and being entertained"
He continued, "We are working hard with the Reserve Team Manager Keith Dicker to do all we can to help these lads progress into the Reserve Squad and ultimatly into the First Team Squad. Its a pretty good place to be at the moment"

"We hope Brightlingsea Regent enjoy the game but go away having being beaten by the better team!!"
