Youth Team invited to Coventry City midweek!
With the absence of a National League Youth Alliance fixture this week, the Scholarship Team had the chance to face off against EFL League One side Coventry City. Mike Fowler and ex Sky Blues player Claus Jorgensen traveled with the team, and were delighted with the application shown by the squad.
Coventry based Lamb Junior Mpofu gave the Scholars an early lead, which they managed to hold until the break. The pressure finally told in the second period, but Raheim Faulder's strike meant that a creditable 2-2 draw was secured, with Mansfield Town next up this Wednesday at the GST Gas Services Stadium at The Lamb, 12.00pm kick off.
Any current year 11 students withing to apply for the September intake of the Scholarship programme should email firstname.lastname@example.org as the next trial is set to take place in February half term.
