PREVIEW Under 18s Face Bournemouth

Young U's welcome the league leaders

11 February 2022

Oxford United’s Under 18s face league leaders AFC Bournemouth in the Youth Alliance South West at the Bangkok Glass Training Centre this Saturday after winning on the road against Bristol Rovers last weekend.

“It was a positive result for a young group last weekend having played four games in 10 days, testing them mentally and physically. It was good to see some of the first years and 16s step up and show leadership qualities which are positive signs for the group going forward” Chris Hackett commented.

Bournemouth have maintained the top spot for much of the season despite the constant pressure being applied by Plymouth, Portsmouth and Exeter, with only three points separating the top four.

The U's, with Eddie Brearey the latest second year to go out on loan after joining St Ives Town, will once again allow their first year scholars to shine in a young side.

We’ll have a full report and reaction on here after the game.

Under 18s Beat the Leaders

REPORT: Oxford United 2 AFC Bournemouth 1

12 February 2022

Oxford United’s Under 18s put in an excellent performance to beat leaders AFC Bournemouth in the Youth Alliance this morning.

Goals from Enrique Tiamuna and Gatlin O’Donkor gave the U’s a 2-1 win at the Bangkok Glass Training Centre and opened up the title race in the South West Division.

In a game played in difficult conditions a strong wind made it hard for both teams. The first chance of the game came to Bournemouth after some nice build up play led to a shot from the edge of the box which was blazed just over the bar but never really troubled Fraser Barnsley in goal.

The wind almost helped Will Owens with an in-swinging corner which forced a save from the Bournemouth keeper but the visitors struggled to cope with United’s corners and it was little surprise with almost the last kick of the first half, the deadlock was broken when Tiamuna headed in from an Owens corner to give United a 1-0 lead at half time.

The leaders levelled with strike from the edge of the box which was well-placed into the bottom left corner out of Barnsley’s reach to level the game after 70 minutes.

However United bounced back and when full back Ibrahim Sankoh was tripped in the box O’Donkor calmly sent the keeper the wrong way and slotted it into the bottom right to give the U’s an excellent win.
