    Our under 18s play Sparta Rotterdam tomorrow afternoon before flying home in the evening.
    The game will take place in Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel, "The Castle" which is their 11,000 seater 1st team ground.

    Now if we got an entrance like that at the Butts I’d be all for it.

    Classy.

    U18s go down 2-1 to Hull in their opening game. Few players out with injury. McMahon with the goal

    I didn't go myself but told the same from someone who was there. Will be a challenging season I think, last years group was really strong (form bulk of U23s side this season as 18 year olds) and most of the goals came from Ponticelli and Finn who are professionals now

    Highlights from the U23s 5-2 win at Birmingham. Blues keeper looks dodgy for a big lad to say the least:

    That's where I was coming from-goals may be a problem(as that chap was saying) now that JP has stepped up.
