Youth: 5 Games, 5 Wins, 15 Points!

18 September 2016

Shakers Youth win again with a 3-1 victory over Wrexham at Carrington

The Youth Team played against Wrexham on their home turf, Carrington, on Saturday morning. Their victory streak continues, as they walked away with a win of 3-1. 

Speaking after the game, Youth Team manager Ryan Kidd gave us his thoughts on the performance

Q. Good results against Wrexham, 3-1, how does it feel? 

Yes, please that we have obviously maintained our 100% record. In the back of my mind, I still know that we can get a lot better. There was some really good, strong, individual performances today which I’m pleased about. Some players do know that they still need to continue working hard to improve, so overall a mixed day, but pleasing to see some excellent football being played. 

Q. Did anyone in particular stand out to you? 

I thought Chukwuemeka Obi did really well, 15 years old, centre half. He’s come into the youth team two to three years before he should do – excellent performance today. At the moment, he looks really assured and has proved that he can handle under 18’s football. So for me, he was one of the stand out players today. 

Q. How’s the atmosphere in camp, positive? 

Yes, it’s really positive. The lads are enjoying winning, but they are reminded by the coaching staff that we all have to keep improving every day. Level headed attitude, enjoying the fact that we are winning. We do know that we will meet a team in the league that will beat us at some point; however, right now we just want to, carry on working hard, and keep improving every day as a team. 

Q. Ahead of next week, any particular focus? 

Nothing in particular, we’re just going to continue what we do out on the training ground, that’s a recipe for how well we do, continue to improve and get the best out of each other. Next week, we’ll approach in good form, and if the lads do everything that the coaching staff ask, then I’m sure that we will do well again.
