The winners of this competition in its inaugural 2015/16 season were Manchester City who beat the Southern Champions, West Bromwich Albion, 4-1 in the final.

This is a knockout style tournament with a strong competitive element.

Bristol Rovers group consisted of AFC Bournemouth, MK Dons and Queens Park Rangers.

The format was a round robin tournament with games lasting 40 minutes.

The winner of each group then advances to the next stage of the tournament.

Their opening game against AFC Bournemouth was tight and cagey.

A 1-1 draw was a decent enough start.

The next fixture against QPR was won 2-1 with clinical finishes on the counter attack.

MK Dons were the third opponent and after an eventful game BRFC won 3-2.

The next round is a group stage with Swansea City, Reading and BCFC the opponents.

The games are played on a home and away basis between now and the end of January.

We will attempt to follow their progress in the next stage.

The Academy staff are delighted at the competitive spirit and winning mentality of this group of players.
