    • Very good win for our youngsters, hope they play really well against Norwich, who have a very good youth team, and that we are able to put our full strength team out against them.

      • RE: Lyons and Stead......from other thread.

        I dont have any up to date information on them..... or their loans.

        If Lyons was back in Ireland maybe it was for the Christmas Break with his club maybe not playing?? or maybe him injured ?

        Tom Stead I believe was at Deepdale yesterday with the youth lads who hadnt been involved at Carlisle - such as Jolley & Potts.
        Maybe his loan is up ?

        I didnt see Ethan walker but couldnt say I clearly saw all the lads present.


        As an aside = another ex youth team player who got a contract is now starting to get regular games.

        Nick Anderton, after a couple of loans and injuries at Barrow, got a contract off Blackpool and has spent a few months at Accy Stanley.

        Here he became a regular and so Blackpool have called him back in January and he apparently had a staring role at LCB for them yesterday.

        Nick was a tall LB with pace and crossing ability (a young Gareth Bale he was called) but injuries stopped his development.

        Not sure how he is handling playing for Blackpool because he is a massive PNE fan..... Used to go to away games as a fan -

        Port Vale away being one such one when he was happy to stand with North End fans being threatened by Vale fans outside the ground afterwards.
        Though injured with a leg problem he assured me his fists were fine !!!

        • SH: thanks for the reply - funny thing is, a player who came through the academy ALWAYS qualifies [as] an academy product for NE.

          If you get a chance to ask: did Tom get injured at Ashton Utd ?

          I never saw the duration of the loan.

            Same here -and I'm not great at finding 'old stories'..... All i know is he played 2 game at Ashton. Was subbed after an hour in the first and after 15 mins in the 2nd (? injury).
            He was unused sub in the next game but never seems to have featured since.....maybe we recalled him when we had nobody else ?

            Unless he is injured again I suspect he will play some part in the bounce game on Tuesday....especially with TC & PH having injuries.

            • Midfielders Jack Baxter, Josh Pollard and Adam O’Reilly found the net as the youth team cruised to a 4-1 win away at Carlisle United.

              Baxter’s penalty midway through the first half gave PNE the lead, the second year scholar completing a brace in the second half when he finished off a slick counter attack, with Pollard and O’Reilly having earlier added to the scoreline in quick succession before half-time.

              Minor injuries to Ethan Walker, Louis Potts and Jerome Jolly made way for Brian McManus, Darren Brannigan and Pollard to return, O’Reilly also coming back into the fold after recent first team duties while James Cottam replaced Jimmy Corcoran in net.

              It was a quiet game initially in the way of chances, Ryan Wombell managing to round Cottam down the right side, his cross cleared in the centre by Lewis Coulton.

              Lincoln McFayden had an effort blocked from a free-kick down the other end, the lively Pollard driving into space on the flank soon after with his ball into the centre just behind Brannigan.

              However, Pollard wrestled possession from a defender just outside the box in the 22nd minute and when he broke inside the area, he was hauled down as the referee quickly pointed to the spot. Baxter stepped up confidently, placing his penalty into the far left corner inside the same minute.

              Adam O’Reilly fizzed a 20-yard free-kick around the wall and on target minutes later, Carlisle goalkeeper Regan Ward holding on at the second attempt.

              There was little he could do in the 28th minute, however, as Pollard again showed a cool head in the final third to make it two. He intercepted a loose pass and beat a man on his way into the box before rounding Ward and finishing from the angle.

              There was a brief suggestion of a response by the hosts as Lewis Earl slid in brilliantly to halt Josh Galloway’s run, Wombell then curling a low angled free-kick straight at Cottam.

              But in the 35th minute, the Lilywhites really tightened their grip on the game with one of their best goals of the season. Some quick passing down the left culminated with Brannigan flicking into O’Reilly’s feet, as he curled a beautiful strike into the top right corner from just outside the box.

              Youth Team Simmons Hopes To Take Winning Mentality Into Cup Competitions

              10 Hours ago
              Tyrhys Dolan drew a low save from Ward in the next attack and he was first to try his luck after the break, this time placing wide of the near post having surged down the left.

              Pollard might have had a second just after the hour mark when he met Brannigan’s left-wing cross at the back post, Ward reacting superbly to keep out the header.

              Baxter did grab a brace, though, completing a stunning counter attack on 65 minutes. Coulton cleared the hosts’ free-kick with Brannigan sending Pollard on his way down the left flank and as his pass across goal found Baxter, he took a touch past Ward and slotted in from a few yards out.

              Carlisle substitute Taylor Charmers looked likeliest to break North End’s resolve, shooting straight at Corcoran – a half-time change in goal – with another effort deflecting into the PNE ‘keeper’s grasp.

              O’Reilly chipped over from distance and Aaron Bennett volleyed over from Baxter’s floated pass, Pollard drawing another late save from Ward with North End looking in complete control – until the very last moments of the game, at least.

              Liam Brockbank converted from a low left-wing cross in the 89th minute to deny PNE a clean sheet, Jamie Armstrong also going close with a deflected effort in added time.

              That was the only mark against the Lilywhites’ performance, though, as Nick Harrison spoke to PNE.Com about a third win in a row for his young side.

              “Each and every player played their part, I thought we played at the right times and got amongst it at the right times as well,” Nick told the club website. “We fully deserved the win and probably could’ve scored more goals.
              “It was a great opportunity for some of the lads who maybe normally don’t start and that’s what football is all about. It shows the level of players that we’ve got; players who can deal with playing in different positions, as we saw with Tyrhys Dolan and Josh Pollard playing wide.
              “All the goals were very good, they all came from us playing some good football on the front foot with some clinical finishing as well.

              “Without singling anyone out, I thought it was a really good performance all-round, the lads played well as a team but did their individual roles really well, too.”

              And the Academy manager believes the youth team’s recent good form is breeding confidence at the perfect time, with the FA Youth Cup tie against Norwich City now only ten days away.
              “It’s all about the performances and we’ve come into the New Year playing on the front foot and playing with some confidence, so long may that continue.
              “We want to build a winning habit but we obviously want to perform well and we think good performances will encourage good results. Hopefully we can build on that next week [against Shrewsbury Town] going into the game against Norwich a week on Tuesday.”

              PNE line-up: Cottam (Corcoran, 46); Simmons (Williams, 82), Earl, McFayden, Coulton; O’Reilly, Baxter; Pollard, McManus (Bennett, 66), Dolan (Nolan, 76); Brannigan (Holland-Wilkinson, 66).
              Josh Earl 19, Josh Harrop 22,Ben Davies 22, Ben Pearson 23, Callum Robinson 23, Alan Browne 23, Sean Maguire 24, Darnell Fisher 24, Tom Barkhuizen 24, Ryan Ledson 20, Jordan Storey 20, Graham Burke 24, Connor Simpson 18.These young players are our future.

              • llanroc - got to admit I've never seen anything of Bennett or Howard Wilkinson so no idea how old they are.

                Williams is a tall lad and played CB when I saw him early season. To be honest I liked the look of him but he doesnt seem to have played much recently...maybe I cant spot a gud un after all !

                the 3rd keeper never seems to play these days either and so I guess he has been overtaken by Corcoran.

                I wonder what the 'small injuries' to Jolley; Potts and Walker were - perhaps something to do with Norwich sending scouts to watch the game ???? maybe Leeds manager was spying !

                • Howard Wilkinson - that made me chuckle SH.

                  Holland-Wilkinson is an U16 player and Bennett is an U15.

                  It's picking up at the academy...

                        The under 15's play at Bolton academy tomorrow night so Bennett might get another game there.

                          Club article from yesterday. 5 players on loan - 3 senior, 2 youth.

                          Only Howard and Simpson are mentioned as being on loan but they are members of the first team. This article may not cover academy players.

                          Something else that I wanted to ask the forum: Charlie Lyons is overage for the U18s. He turned 18 last May. Did he get dispensation to play in U18 games [in 2018-19] and was it just 6 months or the whole season ?

                          Cheers in advance.

                            I could be wrong (probably am) but I thought it was the age they are when the season starts i.e. 1st August

                            • Our under 15's won 5 - 1 away at Bolton this evening, without playing an Under 15 player - we used under 14's, with the Under 15's being rested to play in the under 16's this week.

                              I wonder what the under 16's will do at the weekend before the FA Cup game if Norwich are spying?

                              • Is the Youth game next Tuesday going to be broadcast on iFollow as the previous one was - anybody know? If so I will see if I can watch it.
