Don't really know much about him. 

I see that he is 20 years old. Probably a good strategy to have a few older players to help solidify the U23 team. You don't want 11 talented U18's overrun each match and losing their confidence.

Patterson, Aaron O'Reilly, Tommi O'Reilly, McBride, Alcock, Sewell, Reddin, Lindley

Literally a surname list of Peaky Blinders characters if you didn't know any better. 

McBride is the muscle, Lindley the brains...

Team against Leicester:

Zych, Swinkels, Rhoades, Patterson, Aaron O'Reilly, Tommi O'Reilly, McBride, Alcock, Sewell, Reddin, Lindley

Subs: Lewis, Hart, Young, Pierre, Shakpoke

A couple of those names are new to me.

Quite a few players missing from that lineup which explains the heavy defeat.  Only 2 of that team started against Newcastle.

Last night's line up is pretty much what you'd expect for a U18 league game, the only real regulars missing were Appiah and Ealing and Ealing's been missing for a while now anyway, presumably injured. Leicester aren't very good, lost 8-0 at the weekend and are near the bottom of the table, so whilst we haven't been great ourselves results wise recently, I'm sure we would have expected to do a little better.

That said we did start with three U16 players and bring on another two in the second half, one of them playing at this level at least a year earlier than you'd normally expect, so most important thing will have been to see how they adapt to U18 football.

Harry Williams from West Brow is training with us for 2 weeks apparently. 18 y.o CB who's also followed by Burnley. 6ft 3 with a royal name, can't go wrong there surely.

Also saw a rumor linking us with a 16 y.o CB Josh Feeney from Fleetwood.

2-0 down at half-time both their goals coming from penalties. Can tell that it's quite a disjointed side with a lot of U16s playing, think these final games are more about seeing how they bed in at this level rather worrying too much about results, Patterson looks neat and tidy on the ball, probably one of our better players, Barber has show a few good moments as well. Kadan Young meant to be highly rated so will interesting to see him if he comes on in the second half.
