F.A.Youth Cup

Postby Pitchfork » Tue Oct 29, 2019 10:47 pm

A very impressive 5-0 win by our youth team on a freezing night at TNL.

Helston had a long journey here from Cornwall which took them over 6 hours! They played some good football and showed great determination, but FGR demonstrated skill in abundance throughout the team. The victory & scoreline reflected the play.

Destiny Oladipo scored a hat trick, opening his account in the opening 4 minutes.

255 in attendance including a coach full from Cornwall.

Next round v away to Dulwich Hamlet 16/11

Great night. Looked and sounded more like 400+ and I'm sure both teams enjoyed playing in front of an appreciative, noisy crowd on a fine pitch/stadium.

FGR played as per the DNA. From the back, keep possession to tire/demoralise the opposition, then break fast with rat-a-tat passing. The early first, then third & fourth goals would have graced any game and would have pleased Coops too, let alone Chris & Hannah. In fact, the superb quality of crossing would embarrass some in the first team.

Destiny is a big unit with good feet and he holds the ball well. But whilst his 3 well taken goals took the attention, there were terrific performances from Dan Ogunleye, Isaiah Jones & Owen Orford. Yet the guy who was everywhere and pulled the strings was Dan Jones - he is a seriously good prospect and seems suddenly to be a strong young man rather than a gangling youth. In the EFL Cup games we've had glimpses of Isaiah and the 2 Dans all of whom impressed then. Make no mistake, these guys and others will be pushing for the first team squad in then next 12 months or so, such is the rate that the Academy is developing

Helston were no pushovers and though outclassed, they created some good chances, mainly from 10 Alex Wharton who had blistering pace. Understandably, their fitness began to drain in the latter stages. Such a long trip for them - can only wish them well

Nice to be in the Carole Embrey again. Chips, salad & 'slaw for £3 saw me well satisfied.

Looking forward to the next tie.

Interesting to hear thanks CG. It would be good to see more academy players progress into the first team squad, as recently despite obvious improvement to the set up very few if any have earned pro deals since we've been in the EFL. The likes of Exeter, Colchester and Crewe have a number of academy graduates in their first team squads, so hopefully we'll see a few make it in the near future..
