Were away to Boro in the Under 16's and under 18's. Had a scoot down and was VERY impressed by our lads. We won both games 2-1 and played a lot of very nice football on heavy pitches with sleet coming down throughout. Billy Knott was excellent for the under 18's and scored a great individual goal early in the second half. I was also very impressed with the centre forward for the under 16's but don't know his name Young Marrs who has been playing right back for the stiffs lately was also very good and looks a class above his peers. Its easy to see why he's been promoted to the stiffs on this form. Good to see there are still some good players in the pipeline and on this showing, those who say Boro's youth set up is better than ours are behind the times. We played most of the good football on both pitches. Gary Bennett was there watching his son who played right back for Boro under 16's. He is the spitting image of his Dad facially, but not physically. He's quite slight in build and had a quite game. Boro had one lad playing in the under 16's who looked about ten. He was clearly a LOT younger than the other players and I assume he is highly rated and being fast tracked through the ranks. He did not stand out (being about a foot shorter than everyone else on the pitch), but when he got the ball he did not look out of place.
