Notts Youth Team Thump Rotherham

17 March 2014

Notts County youth team thumped Rotherham United 5-0 as they got back to winning ways at Highfields.

The young Magpies had seen their run of seven consecutive league wins ended last weekend by Doncaster Rovers but bounced back in fine style.

Goals from Alex Kenlock (2), Elliot Hodge (2) and Elliot Brown wrapped up a dominant performance.

Head of Academy coaching Andy McMillan was pleased with his side but pointed out plenty of  required improvement.

“It was a good win but thinking about the game we have to be better because we took our foot off the pedal,” he told the official site. 

“When you’ve got someone on the ropes, especially when you’re a professional outfit, you’ve just got to keep knocking them down.

“We started doing things we don’t normally do, but when you look at it at the end of the game it’s a comprehensive win for us and we can take a lot of positives out of that.

“It was a good performance and it helps us to build a bit more confidence.

“Myself and Mick [Leonard], we expect incredibly high standards of these lads and we know they can do it.

“They’ve put in performances where they’ve absolutely battered teams, like Grimsby at home, where we couldn’t score and they’ve gone up the other end of the pitch and punished us.

“At we weekend we took our chances but the standards are there and we expect them to be adhered to whatever the scoreline, as it becomes a habit that you do it no matter what.”
