REPORT | U18s Pay Price for Slow Start

07th September 2018 by Jamie Griffiths - Academy,Club News

Another slow start cost the young Bulls dear as the U18 side went down 4-1 to Gloucester City in the Midland Floodlit Youth League last night.

Having conceded three in the opening 25 minutes of the previous away match, Dan Chance’s side found themselves two down inside the opening half hour at Longlevens. The Tigers opened the scoring on 14 minutes, capitalising on slack marking to slot home a cross that should have been cut out.

On the half hour it was two-nil with the Bulls defence slow to clear and a driven effort was deflected over the diving keeper into the net. The Bulls were denied the chance to pull one back on 40 minutes when the linesman gave a bizarre call to pull back play for a foul on Luke Firkin when the forward was clean through on goal.

If the start to the first half was slow, the second half got even worse with the Tigers making it 3-0 on 49 minutes, before a fourth on 55 with the home side countering quickly with the Bulls upfield chasing the game.

Sean Yalland pulled one back with an edge-of-the-box curled effort on 72 minutes, after good work by Firkin, with Jack Marston forcing a good save from the keeper three minutes later to halt the comeback.

Marston then put a free kick over the bar before a scramble gave the Bulls a further chance late on, but they couldn’t find the net with the home side lucky with the bounce of the ball.

The U18 side now have a short break before entertaining Tipton Town in the FA Youth Cup at Edgar Street on Thursday, September 20th.
