Young Guns Having some Fun

Plymouth Argyle 1 - 4 Manchester City (FAYC quarter final)

Argyle's youth team had their hopes of a semi final place in the Youth Cup dashed by a 4-1 defeat against Manchester City at Home park yesterday.

The chance of reaching the semis for the first time ever fell on the heads of the young guys when they won 3-2 against Birmingham last month, however progression was not in the minds of the gods as Argyle trailed 2-0 at half time. They went a further 2 goals down in front of a large attendance before Jarred Stevens scored the consolation.

It's great to see that Argyle are developing a youth team capable of getting so far in such a competition. The youth have seen a vast array of changes in recent years, some have caused consternation amongst the supporters who have funded parts of the development, but we should be proud of these guys.
