Alex Morgan will take all the plaudits with a goal and two assists, which did his chances no harm in front of the gaffer Luke Garrard, but Sorba Thomas stole the show with his impressive direct play, matched by his silky skill to unsettle the defence. The other goals were scored by Bradley Sach and a first goal of the season for first year Archie Pepper
U19 coach Cameron Mawer commented shortly after the game “Brightlingsea were very good at what they do, they go back to front quickly and try to get on top of you with an aggressive manner but I was proud of the way the boys dealt with so many long balls, it was tin hat stuff at times but all credit to every boy who put a shift in ”
He added ” We now come into the home straight, having drawn Kidderminster Harriers in the quarter finals of the National League Cup, we can now prepare ourselves for what should be an exciting few months for the Academy”
Its a big end of season for the U19s, as they push to win on three fronts the National League, the National League Cup and the ECFA National Cup, Which would complete a memorable and record breaking year for the Academy.
