REPORT: Crystal Palace U18s 0 Swans U18s 1
9th November 2014
The Under-18s made it back-to-back league wins following a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Dan James struck a post before the visitors broke the deadlock as Adnan Maric played in Owain Jones who produced a cool finish on 75 minutes.
The result means the Under-18s have only lost once in their last seven league and cup games and coach Cameron Toshack was delighted with his side's performance.
"It was another good performance from our team, things are starting to gel and they are certainly getting better with their performances as individuals and as a group," he said.
"There are still areas we need to work and improve on - I want to see us pass the ball better in midfield.
"That said, Joe Rodon and Dylan Thomas were composed on the ball and helped our passing pattern.
"We played very well as a defensive unit once again and kept our third clean sheet in a row - improving our defending is something we have spoken about as a group and are starting to work hard on.
"I was pleased to see Owain Jones get his goal for all the hard work he put in up front. Steve (Fallon) and Dan (James) were exhilarating on both flanks which was great to see.
SWANS U18s: Lewis Thomas, Aaron Lewis, Jordan Sherman, Cameron Gilchrist, Joe Rodon, Dylan Thomas, Adnan Maric (Tom Dyson), Jamie Latham (Kyle Copp), Owain Jones, Steve Fallon, Dan James (Brandon Griffiths).
The Under-18s return to FAW Youth Cup action next Sunday against Haverfordwest in the third round of the competition.
