PREVIEW AFC Wimbledon U18 v Oxford United U18

Young U's take on Wimbledon in the League Cup

24 September 2021

Oxford United’s under 18s look to make progress in the League Cup this weekend when they travel to  AFC Wimbledon’s Under 18s.

Both teams are unbeaten in the league so far and the U’s face a good test against a strong Dons side who they met in the FA Youth Cup last season.

“That game was a really good one for us” Coach Chris Hackett told us.”We had a decent cup run but then we came up against a Wimbledon side who we don’t usually play and who had an intensity and energy that you need to get through in cup games sometimes.

“We looked back at that and can learn from it: cup games are the ones where you need the passion and the attitude as well as the technical and tactical things we know we will get in league games from our boys. Wimbledon are top of their league but we have the same record- won three drawn one so it’s a game we are really looking forward to.”

Under 18s Lose Out in League Cup

U's lose 2-1 at AFC Wimbledon

27 September 2021

Oxford United’s U18 side were knocked out of the Youth Alliance Cup at the second-round stage by AFC Wimbledon, losing 2-1 away on Saturday.

Having progressed with a 1-0 win at Sutton United in the opening round the U’s were hopeful of going further and for an hour of the game looked well set to do so. Gatlin O’Donkor continued his good run of form by opening the scoring for the visitors and they had chances to extend the lead further.

United controlled the game and played well up until the hour mark but couldn’t hold on to their one goal advantage and two goals for Wimbledon in the second half meant that United were knocked out of the cup.

“It is always so disappointing to lose in any cup game” Coach Darren Purse told us. “We were good in the first half, should have been more than one goal up really, but then we stopped doing the good things we were doing and got caught by two goals.

“We don’t make excuses, we weren’t good enough over the 90 minutes and we will get back to the training ground this week and look to put things right.”

United’s u18s will be back in action next weekend when they are back on their travels to take on Portsmouth in the EFL Youth Alliance on Saturday.
