Cameron Scores Winner For Youth Team

23 September 2013

Richie Kyle's Side Beat Burnley

Henry Cameron scored for the second game running in the North West Youth Alliance to hand the young Seasiders another three points.

The winger lofted the ball over Burnley’s goalkeeper in the second-half to move Pool up to seventh in the league, and a fifth clean sheet from six games was also kept.

Dion Charles had missed a penalty for Blackpool before the winner, but Cameron’s strike made it two wins from the last two games.

Richie Kyle, the youth team’s Head of Coaching, was glad to build on the win at Walsall two weeks ago as the young Tangerines struggled to compete in the first-half.

“It was a tough game, we struggled to match Burnley’s passing game in the first-half because we weren’t at our best,” said Kyle.

“We competed in the second-half and were a lot braver in possession. The lads showed good mentality to come away from it with all three points.”

Pool have managed just six goals in six league games so far, but Kyle insists the attacking side of their game will begin to pick up.

“We have been creating chances in all of our games so there isn’t much to worry about, things will get better,” he said.

“Our theme in training for the week will be attacking. We just need to show more composure in front of goal.”

Next up for Pool is a trip to Accrington Stanley on September 28. The young Seasiders met Stanley in a pre-season friendly at Lytham YMCA, where goals from Mark Waddington and Dom Telford gave them a 2-1 victory.

Kyle, expecting another tricky encounter, said: “We’ve already had a look at them in pre-season and they’re a decent team. They gave us a good game, but if we start strongly then we can beat them.”
