Gilbert’s youngsters in positive place ahead of FA Youth Cup tie

10 December 2019

Peter Gilbert says there’s lots of positives Albion Under-18s can take into their FA Youth Cup Third Round clash against Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night (ko 7pm).

The young Baggies will be looking to follow in the footsteps of last season’s semi-finalists, with recent victories against Liverpool and Manchester United providing confidence ahead of the tie.

And Gilbert believes his team are in a positive position as they head into the game.

“We’re in a good place at the moment,” said Gilbert.

“There’s lots of positives, lots of good performances and lots of good competition for places. It’s all positive at the moment. 

“We’ve had wins in recent weeks against Liverpool and Manchester United, so that gives us confidence, which we will need to show as it will be a tough game against Scunthorpe.

“The FA Youth Cup is a great competition and it will be exciting for the lads to play at The Hawthorns on Tuesday, so we’re looking forward to it and we will be hoping for a positive result.”

Albion U18s 3 Scunthorpe U18s 0

10 December 2019

Albion Under-18s progressed to the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win against Scunthorpe United at The Hawthorns on Tuesday evening.

Peter Gilbert's side gained a two-goal advantage after just ten minutes, which provided a platform for a convincing victory.

The first goal was created by Rico Richards, who picked up the ball just inside the visitors’ half and travelled all the way into the box before releasing a low effort into the corner of the net.

Minutes later, Jamie Andrews’ corner found Ethan Ingram, who flicked a header onto Jovan Malcolm to nod in the Baggies’ second of the evening.

Andrews' delivery from set-pieces would continue to cause Scunthorpe problems throughout the evening; Malcolm was denied by the bar from a corner and Charles Barks was saved from an unfortunate own-goal when his header crashed against his own crossbar.

Another promising moment saw Alex Gilbert hit the post after getting a shot away in the box, but the Baggies would go into half-time with just a two-goal lead.

After the break, Albion stretched their advantage through a familiar method. Andrews’ perfect delivery from a corner-kick was met by the head of Malcolm just after the hour mark, rounding off a deserved victory.

ALBION: Griffiths; Ingram, Taylor, Hill, Delaney; Andrews (Smith 75); Fellows, Richards (Wakeling 89), Gilbert, Thorndike; Malcolm (Faal 80).

Substitutes: Emery, Williams, Ashworth, Smith, King.
