Off to this today, looking forward to seeing who the next promising youngster to get poached by a bigger club is going to be!

Thanks for the link, pleased to see that we had won the game also it must be a really good experience for the team to player against older players. Also pleasing to see that we had come from a goal down to win the game too.

Callam Jones was absolutely outstanding at Centre Back, head and shoulders above anyone else on the pitch from either side. Atkinson, Alex Jones and Garmston also played well.

The one to watch though from that display was Leko who came on with about 20 minutes left. Don't know how old he is, to me he didn't look much older than 15 but the lad didn't half have some technical ability, dribbling and speed. Not sure whether that was a one off performance or if that is what he does on a consistent basis, if anyone watches the academy regularly perhaps they could let us know.

If he does that all the time, he'll be poached soon enough as well.

Edit: Looked up that Leko lad on the web. Same age group as the lad Dhanda who went to Liverpool, so is only 14.

Is this him pictured here Mat?

Yeah that's him. Was tiny compared to some "bigger" non-league players, but they couldn't get near him.
