36 Hours Later
October 30, 2016
Youth Alliance South West Division Season 2016/17 Update.
Two Away fixtures in 36 hours provides too great a challenge.
Bristol Rovers FC Academy Under 18 side played AFC Bournemouth on Saturday 29th October 2016.
The Cherries Academy side won 4-0 and have now won three consecutive matches.
This game came just 36 hours after the 2-0 victory for BRFC at Oxford United in the FA Youth Cup match.
This second AWAY match in such a short spell of time was asking a great deal of minds and bodies.
Having kicked off at 7.45pm on Thursday 27th October 2016 it was a big ask to play well 36 hours later.
There is little flexibility with youth squads and only a limited degree of player rotation possible.
The next match is again an Away fixture against another South Coast side in the form of Portsmouth.
The league matches in the Youth Alliance South West Division on Saturday 29th October 2016 were:
AFC Bournemouth 4 v 0 Bristol Rovers
Plymouth Argyle v Oxford United (TBC)
Swindon Town 5 v 3 Cheltenham Town
Yeovil Town 1 v 2 Exeter City
