PREVIEW Newport County U18 v Oxford United U18

Young U's take on the Exiles

3 September 2021

Oxford United’s under 18s will look to build on another positive week when they travel to Newport County on Saturday in the EFL Youth Alliance.

This week saw several of the youngsters given a chance at first-team level, with Tyler Goodrham and Josh Johnson making first starts and Clint Nosakhare and Josh Anifowose making their debuts as substitutes, with Ben Watt and Adam Smith both on the bench.

All are expected to return to the under-19 squad for the trip to South Wales, with coach Chris Hackett saying:

“It was great experience and with Leon Chambers-Parillon and Michael Elechi involved, there were six outfield players at one stage on Tuesday who have come through the Academy.

“That’s great to see but we just need to refocus and make sure everyone is switched on for Saturday because we have another important game at Newport, where we know we are going to have a tough 90 minutes.”

United’s under 17s are also in action at home to Woking.

O'Donkor double as Under 18s win again

6 September 2021

Oxford United’s under 18s continued their excellent start to the season with a 3-1 win at Newport County on Saturday morning.

Two goals from striker Gatlin O’Donkor and a late effort from winger Amari Davis-Stephenson soon after coming on as a sub ensured that the U’s remain undefeated in the league so far and coach Chris Hackett told us:

“A number of the lads played in the First Team at Cambridge in midweek and our message to them in between was that we were looking for attiitude and to see that they had used that experience as a positive and had used it well.

“It would have been easy to let our standards slip but we didn’t do that, we took our chances and the lads should be really pleased with the result.”
