Bowyer: Youth Team Doing Club Proud

Manager Thrilled With Further Progression In Cup

30 January 2018

First-team manager Gary Bowyer was full of pride after watching the youth team progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup at Ipswich this evening.

Goals from Rowan Roache and Owen Watkinson proved enough to seal the victory and set up a date against Nottingham Forest or Blackburn Rovers in the next round. 

"I'm really proud of the youth team boys," Bowyer said "That's four away wins in this competition now, plus a home victory on penalties. 

"The determination to succeed has been fantastic and I once again must congratulate John Murphy, Ian Dawes and the rest of the staff. 

"All the first-team players were also watching the game on a live link and I know they are absolutely thrilled for the lads. It's a magnificent achievement."
