Youths Get The First Team Experience

19 March 2013

Notts County youth team will get to experience the same away day luxuries as the first team squad ahead of their Midland Youth Cup Semi-Final.

Sponsors On-Call Recruitment have hired the first team bus for the big fixture, which sees the young Magpies take on Shrewsbury Town youth team at the Greenhous Meadow. 

Youth team coach Brett Adams has thanked On-Call managing director Adrian Rawden for his continued backing of the Academy. 

“As a department, we’ve got a fantastic relationship with Adrian and On-Call,” he told the official site. 

“He’s very much about the youth players and wants to help out in any way that he can to see this club progress. 

“He asked me if he could do something for us for the trip and we said it would be nice for us to travel the way that the first team do.

“That’s what he did and he’s offered to do other bits if we get to the final and it’s all appreciated. 

“We can’t thank him enough for his continued support, both this season and last season.”

Adams is expecting a tricky game against the Shrews but expects his players to be up for the challenge. 

He continued: “It could be the last part that some of these second years play and decisions over their future could be made of the next three or four weeks. 

“It’s massively important that they stake a claim for their future.

“It’s a big game for all the players but if they turn up and play the way they have in recent weeks, solid at the back and free-flowing football at the front, then we know we can get to the final.”

The fixture has been scheduled for 2pm on Tuesday 19 March and will take place at the Greenhous Meadow Stadium. 

Tickets are priced at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.
