Torquay United’s Under-18 side wrap up their league campaign tomorrow with a top-of-the-table clash against Bristol Academy.
With a cup semi-final against Circenster taking place at the club’s South Devon College the following weekend, there is still an opportunity for The Young Gulls to match their senior counterparts and mark a season of excellent progress with silverware.
Coach Shaun Taylor is looking forward to a clash between the two best sides in the division.
“Bristol are top, and we are second. We played them a few weeks ago at their place and lost 4-0, and we’re going to give it our bet shot,” said Taylor.
“If you look at table, us and Bristol are probably the best teams, we’ve had a good season, only drawing one and losing one, it’s our last league game as we look to finish on a high. I only took over in December, we’ve done very well with results and we’re looking to develop that next season.
“We’ve had competitive games against Bath, Cirencester and Wimborne, we’re happy to be in the league at the moment for where we are.”
Last weekend meanwhile, saw our U14s come out on top in their five-goal thriller against Taunton Town Blues.
Danny Grant gave our youngsters an early lead, however despite Tate Aggrey, Sam Bishop and Sean Brown all coming close to extending their advantage, it was Taunton who had the lead with ten minutes remaining. However, United never gave up, and late strikes from Alfie Lloyds and Aggrey secured an excellent win.
