Oxford United U18s beat Newport County U18s 4-2 in Wales on Saturday morning as they warmed up for their FA Youth Cup clash against Sutton United on Friday (17th November) evening.
Kasway Burton scored a hat-trick with Leo Snowden, fresh off the back of becoming United’s youngest ever player, also got on the scoresheet.
The win gives the U’s a big boost heading into Friday night when the young U’s take on Sutton United at Court Place Farm in the second round of the Youth Cup.
Tickets are available on the gate and will cost £6 for Adults and £3 for Over 65s and Under 18s
Coach Pablo Haysham said
“It was a good win and the boys did really well to grind out the result. We need to take the momentum into Sutton United on Friday.
“Kasway was excellent and it was great for Leo to get a goal to round off a good week for him personally, and the win will help us to keep looking up the table.
“We’ve played against them before and they’re always physical games so the boys will need to be together to get through to the next round.
