PREVIEW Oxford United U18 v Plymouth Argyle U18

Young U's in home action on Saturday

21 January 2022

Oxford United’s Under 18s are in Youth Alliance action on Saturday morning when they welcome Plymouth Argyle to the Bangkok Glass Training Centre

The U’s have slipped a little in the table after last week’s game at home to Portsmouth was postponed but with 7 games left of the season and 8 points separating the top 6 teams, the title race is still wide open as Coach Chris Hackett told us

“It’s a really competitive league this season and there are some very strong sides. We have said all along that it’s not all about winning the league, it is about developing players, but now is the time when the games start to run out and there is a little bit of pressure on results; that’s when you find out that little bit more about character and the players you have in the squad.”

Plymouth currently occupy the league position above the U’s who sit in 5th.

The game kicks off at midday at the Bangkok Glass Training Centre and we will have a report right here straight after

Davis-Stephenson goal not enough as young U's lose

24 January 2022

Oxford United’s Under 18s were beaten 3-1 by Plymouth Argyle on Saturday morning at the Bangkok Glass Training Centre in the Youth Alliance League.

Trailing 1-0 at the break United conceded early in the second half before winger Amari Davis-Stephenson got them back into the game. However, a third goal from the visitors sealed the win and left Coach Chris Hackett to reflect:

“It wasn’t a great performance and we just gave the lads a gentle reminder that we have set high standards over the last few years and we always have to try and aspire to that. We were a bit sloppy in the first half but were still in it. Then we conceded just a few seconds into the second half and suddenly the game becomes more difficult.

“We made a conscious decision to get the second years some games on loan at senior clubs - Clinton Nosakhare played his first game at Biggleswade on Saturday. That means the first years will get more game time and it was one of them, Amari, who got our goal and got us back into it. But then we concede a third and again give ourselves too much to do.

“Plymouth are a good side, so no argument about the scoreline. But we need to learn lessons, and hopefully one or two of the lads play in the Senior Cup at Kidlington on Wednesday and show a positive reaction.”
