Scott Parker’s under 18 side travel to Reading’s Hogwood park training ground this Saturday, for a league encounter with the royals, kick off: 11:30am. The game will be our sides last match before a two week international break. I will be traveling to Finchampstead for Saturdays game to report on what I’m hoping will be a positive game for the young lillywhites. Parker’s side have had a mixed start to the season with three wins and three loses from their first six competitive fixtures. Meanwhile, Reading who done the double over us last season have started this campaign with six straight defeats, something which will only encourage our lads. This is after all a Spurs squad consisting of mostly first year scholars and their results and performances this season have been impressive. Despite Reading’s current winless streak they boast a top academy, one which saw them excel last season, qualifying for tier one of their merit group. I suspect this game will still come too soon for the injured Rayan Clarke as too is the case for 18 year old goalkeeper Charlie Freeman. I will be providing an in depth match report for Saturdays game, which will be up on Saturday evening. COYS
My predicted lineup: De Bie(c), Lock, Dinzeyi, Lyons-Foster, Hinds, P.Maghoma, Bowden, Markanday, A.Shashoua, P.Patterson, Griffiths.
My score prediction: 2-1 to Spurs.
