POSITIVES FOR COACH JON BRADY IN U18S DEFEAT AT PORTSMOUTH

EFL Youth Alliance Merit Division 1 action

13 April 2019

Northampton Town's youth team travelled to Portsmouth on Saturday for their latest EFL Youth Alliance Merit Division 1 fixture.

Morgan Roberts from the penalty spot and Caleb Chukwuemeka scored in a 4-2 defeat for the Cobblers but coach Jon Brady felt his young side were more than competitive and could have come away with a draw.

"It was a really positive performance," he said.

"We had two players from the club's Football and Education programme and we also had an under 15 player, Courtney Lashley, start the game which I don't think we've had before in an under 18s game.  That is real testament to Courtney and I thought he did very well.

"It's good to blood these players early, the boys were very competitive and it certainly bodes well for the future."
