Youth Team Draw With Imps

18 March 2013

Notts County youth team had to settle for a draw against their Lincoln City counterparts, following a 90 minutes that saw them miss a host of opportunities.

There had been doubt over whether the fixture would go ahead due to heavy rainfall but the referee gave it the green light following a second inspection. 

Notts started the game slowly and went behind inside the opening 10 minutes. 

Shortly before the break, great work by Brad McGowan allowed Romello Nangle to put the Magpies back on even terms. 

Youth team coach Brett Adams felt that his side should have gone on to take all three points. 

“We created numerous chances but if you don’t take them, you don’t get the points,” he told the official site. 

“Although we didn’t show too much in the first half, we didn’t look like conceding.

“In hindsight, the youth staff were working hard on getting the game on and maybe that hampered the preparation of the players a bit. 

“We struggled to get going but in the last five minutes of the half something clicked.

“Brad won a header that in turn put Romello through one on one and we scored but it’s a shame we couldn’t find that second.”

The youth team are in action again on Tuesday afternoon, when they will take on Shrewsbury Town at the Greenhous Meadow.
