There’s a slight feeling of deja vu around the Academy this week, and there a good reason for it. A special request from our fellow Championship Academy means we will play away twice this season and at home twice next.
After a strong U19 squad showing against Moseley last time out, we are keen to put the lessons learned over the last few games to try to make sure we get a better outcome from this trip to Lady Bay.
Our previous fixture against Nottingham ended in a comfortable win for the home side, despite a strong finish from the young Trailfinders. It will take a big effort from all involved to reverse the result but we are able to pick from an almost full squad.
There are seats available on the team bus for the trip and anybody looking to travel should contact Academy Manager Annie Lyndon to grab a spot.
