YOUTH: Shrewsbury v Morecambe Pre-match

22 September 2018

U18s take on Morecambe at the Sports Village

Shrewsbury’s U18s are back in League action on Saturday where they will face Morecambe at the Shrewsbury Sports Village, and they will be hoping to come away with maximum points.

The last League game for Shrewsbury was away against a very tough Fleetwood Town side, in which both teams came away with a point after the game finished 0-0. They also picked up their first point of the Youth Alliance Cup against Walsall FC last week, with Archie Elmore scoring the equaliser after going one nil down through a penalty.

Eric Ramsey feels that his side will have a large amount of possession in the game as they are playing at home, and this is something that is a recurring theme for The Blues.

“It is a home game that I would like to think that we’d have the lion’s share of possession.

“Hopefully we can convert what could be a large spell of possession into goals and that hasn’t always been something we’ve done this year and that is something we’re continuing to work on.

“It’s one that the players should really look forward too.”  

Ramsey has no fresh injury issues that would affect his team selection, but he faces a struggle as “it’s a very competitive squad.”

“You’ve seen players that didn’t play last week play a significant part against Fleetwood and have done well, so we’re in a position that we want to be in where there is a lot of competition for places across the group.

“That’s even discounting the Under 16’s that will inevitably make a mark in the Under 18 squad this year.

“So changes, I’m not sure. We will have to see.”

Their hopes for the upcoming game against Morecambe is that they can produce a similar performance as they did against Walsall.

“It’s very much the case of picking up exactly where we left off at the end of our game against Walsall.”

The game takes place at Shrewsbury Sports Village with an 11am kick-off, admission is free so if you are not making the trip to Scunthorpe pop down and see the U18s in action.
