Town Under-18s ease through to next round

The Town Under-18s secured their passage to the second qualifying round of the FA Youth Cup with a routine win a 4-0 win over AFC Kempston on Tuesday night.


Two first-half braces from Jemale McKenzie-Lowe and Arel Amu put Paul Driver's side in command in the opening 45 minutes.


The Hatters youngsters dominated the second half and missed an opportunity to make it five when Jerome Jibodu missed a late penalty.


 

Driver said afterwards: "I am happy on one hand because it is a win away from home and we are safely through to the next round with no injuries incurrred.  


"Having said that, we were far from our best on the night in front of goal and we have to convert more than four of the 35 chances we created." 


Victory means the Town will now host either Cogenhoe or Peterborough Northern Star at Kenilworth Road in the next qualifying round.  


Town: Carpenter, Stanley, Jibodu, Rees (sub Cobb 74), Longden, Chabata, Davis (sub Ngwala), Smith, McKenzie-Lowe, Banton (sub Haag 61), Amu.  Subs not used: Barnes (GK), Galliford.
