PREVIEW: U18s Travel to Newport

Youngsters looking for fifth straight win

10 October 2019

United U18s are back in Youth Alliance League action on Saturday as they take on Newport County away (KO 11.30am)

The young U’s are six unbeaten in the league, winning their last four games in all competitions and will be looking to continue the strong run of form.

Team News

Slavi Spasov and Jack Stevens remain on the treatment table whilst Fabio Sole is likely to return to the side after making his first team debut for the U’s in midweek alongside Fabio Lopes and Nico Jones who were also involved in the Leasing.com Trophy squad on Tuesday.

Lead PDP Coach Leon Blackmore-Such told us:

“It’s about keeping the hammer down and continuing the run. As a team we are doing well but for the lads individually it’s about making your game better. Their ambition should be pushing to play in the first team, so we need to keep working every minute that we get to keep making these boys better.”

Match Information

For supporters wishing to watch the U18s in action, the match will be played at the Newport County Academy, Lliswerry High School (NP19 4RP). Entry is FREE.
