Five wins out of six for Academy

29th January 2019

City's Under-19s climbed to third place in the National League Under-19 Alliance Division I after a 6-0 victory over Frickley Athletic.

Strikers Ethan Henderson and Kiara Ventura both scored twice and captain Josh Rogerson and substitute Aston Harrison were also on target.

City have now won five of their last six games in all competitions including the 2-1 victory over holders Chester at Bootham Crescent in the National League Cup.

City's opponents in the quarterfinal of the Cup will be Nottingham-based Basford United who are currently fourth in Division G.

The game is scheduled to take place at Basford's Greenwich Avenue ground on Wednesday February 13.

Reflecting on Friday afternoon's victory over Frickley, youth team manager Tim Ryan said: "It was a comfortable win but the lads stayed disciplined and organised and goalkeeper Jake Teale kept a clean sheet. The stand-out performers were Josh Rogerson and Jake Watson at the back."

Tomorrow's scheduled league game against second-placed Gateshead has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the Wigginton Road training ground.

City U19s (V Frickley Athletic): Teale; Rogerson (C), Cawthorn, Watson; Binsley (Overton 70), R.Harrison, D.Jackson, W.Jackson (Whitfield 57), Jebson-King (Anderson 80); Ventura (A.Harrison HT), Henderson.
