ACADEMY: Match Preview Port Vale U18

13 September 2019

The U18s are in action at home to Port Vale on Saturday at the Sports Village

AFTER their impressive 2-0 win over Salford City the U-18’s are looking forward to taking on Port Vale this Saturday at the Shrewsbury Sports Village.

An own goal and a thumping strike from Charlie Catton wrapped up the three-points last weekend and, head coach, Callum McKenzie is hoping for a similar performance against Vale on Saturday.

He said; “If we play like we did last week I know we can beat anyone. Against Port Vale we will look to build momentum, it’s a home game and that is important for us”.

“We have struggled so far this season to build on results, but I think the preparation this week will help us on Saturday”.

“This is the first time where we haven’t had a game midweek. We will have Monday off and then be in Tuesday to Friday with a couple of double sessions, so that will help us”.

Despite their league position McKenzie reiterates that Port Vale are not to be underestimated and they will be tough opposition for the Shrews, he said; “Port Vale are a direct team and they enjoy playing off the second contact, we know they are going to be tricky opposition”.

“We will focus on our team plan and keep playing with intensity, if we do that and we play our best then I will be happy”.

Kick-Off is 11am at the Shrewsbury Sports Village (SY1 4RQ).

ACADEMY: Shrewsbury Town U18 5 Port Vale U18 0

16 September 2019

IT was a five-star performance from the young Shrews over Port Vale and a Charlie Caton hattrick helped secure all three points.

The Shrews recorded their biggest win of the season seeing off Vale 5-0 with goals from Caton, Lewis Redding and Jamaine Turner.

Caton opened the scoring after 14-minutes, he worked hard to find the space in the box from a corner and was left with a free header that he nodded home.

His second was the pick of the bunch. Ethan O’Toole split the defence with a sublime through ball which left Caton 1-on-1 with the keeper, in his current form, he was never going to turn down the opportunity and chipped the on-rushing keeper.

The striker sealed his hattrick with a sliding short-range effort after some neat build-up play down the right-wing.

From scoring to supplying, Caton set up Turner’s goal when he played a long ball over the top of a tired Valiant defence to the feet of Turner. The winger got what he had deserved all afternoon and got himself on the scoresheet after working the ball infield and firing past the keeper.

Redding will also be putting his finish forward for goal of the day. The right-back controlled the ball past two defenders, opening up the space to shoot before he curled the ball past the out-stretched keeper.

Despite the dominant scoreline Sam Agius had to remain alert producing a couple of fine saves to ensure his side kept a second consecutive clean sheet.

Next up for the Shrews they travel to Oldham hoping to continue this impressive run, away from home.
