Our under 18 side opened their campaign with a 3-1 defeat at home to Aldershot Town this evening at a wet Silver Jubilee Park.

The young Greens, who are virtually a brand new squad from last season put in a hard working performance, but were ultimately beaten by the better side. The only player in the side tonight that was with us last season was Keagan Cole.

The Shots took the lead in the 20th minute, doubling it fifteen minutes later, but shortly before half-time captain Mickey White was fouled in the box and he stepped up to convert the spot kick clinically.

The second half saw the Greens hold firm until ten minutes from time when Aldershot scored their third.

Whilst there is plenty of work to do with the new squad, manager John Creith will certainly have seen some very good signss that hopefully bode well for the future.

Team : Daniel Purdue, Justin Wilson, Joshua Kennedy-Bell, William Lahti, Ndue Telaj, Perry Smith-Aitchison, Nickolas Constantinou, Keagan Cole, Mickey White, Tareeq Mustafa, Makinwa Rahaman. Subs (both used) : Ethan Arthur, Jessie Nzamale.
