U19s back in action after Cup loss

By Ian Appleyard | 15th February 2019

City's U19s will return to league action against Gateshead on Monday afternoon after losing on penalties to Basford United in midweek in the quarterfinal of the National League U19 Alliance League Cup.

Tim Ryan's side fell behind to an early goal at Greenwich Avenue but Charlie Jebson-King equalised from the penalty spot with 18 minutes to play.

The game finished 1-1 after 90 minutes and went straight to a penalty shoot-out which City lost 4-3.

City's goalscorers in the shoot-out were Will Jackson, Jack Cawthorne, and Josh Rogerson. Jebson-King's penalty was saved and Nathan Dyer shot the final penalty over the crossbar.

Gateshead are currently second in National League U19 Alliance Division I but are only four points above fourth-placed City who have two games in hand. The two clubs played out a goalless draw at Gateshead in September.

The game takes place at City's Wigginton Road training ground (kick-off 1.30pm).

City's U19s have another home game - less than 48 hours later - on Wednesday afternoon against seventh-placed Eccleshill United (12noon).

City (V Basford United): Whitley; Rogerson, Cawthorn, Watson; Dyer, Whitfield, A.Harrison, W.Jackson, Jebson-King; Jones (Anderson 85), Henderson (Overton 60). Unused substitutes: Binsley, D.Jackson, Teale.
