Shrewsbury Town Academy picked up an emphatic 6-1 victory on Saturday against high flying Doncaster Rovers. Town got the month of October off to an incredible start. 

The Academy’s stand out performer was unquestionably Lifumpa Mwandwe who scored five goals and set up the other goal. “I was really pleased, It was arguably our best performance of the season so far.

“We controlled the game from start to finish, we were uncharacteristically ruthless in front of goal. I think normally we are guilty are not taking the chances we create."

Ramsay was understandably full of praise for his young forward Mwandwe. “He would say himself that there were occasions so far this season where he could already have done what he did on Saturday. So I think for him to have done that it was really pleasing.”

It was a top performance he was near perfect in-front of goal. I think most pleasing was that he also got an assist when it was on to set team mates up as opposed to trying to add to his own tally. It was a really strong performance from him.

“All of the goals were really well worked. There were some really good assists from the centre halves. Long range passes and some short sharp combination play that led to some good chances”

“Everyone takes credit for this performance.”

Ramsay also spoke to Shrewsweb about how he thought the month of September had been ‘inconsistent’ on the pitch. Town picked up one win, two draws and a loss over this period.

“We lost away to Wigan which is always our toughest fixture in the league. I didn’t feel we were particularly strong that day. It was a case of nearly as it has been on so many occasions recently when we travel to them.

“That result was disappointing because I feel on our day we are more of a match for anyone.

“Around that result and the recent one against Doncaster we’ve shown that we have had some indifferent days, by showing what a good side we have and some quality players.”

“We probably haven’t got all the points we perhaps deserved. But we’re pleased with how we’ve started this season.”

The Academy are at home to Blackpool this weekend at the Sports Village, 11am Kick-Off. Free Admission.
