YOUNG BLUES GIVE IT ALL!
Under 18's fight all the way in FA Youth Cup clash with AFC Wimbledon
The Marlow Youth side fought for the whole 90 minutes against the academy side of league club AFC Wimbledon before stepping out of this season's FA Youth cup after a valiant display at Oak Tree Road. Not surprisingly their opponents were generally older that the Marlow lads and physically more advanced but the lads in Blue gave their all throughout the game and thoroughly deserved the praise their efforts earned from a healthy crowd of 231.
They finally went down to 2 first-half goals (including a "soft" penalty) and an absolute screamer late in the second period and whilst having few opportunities themselves could not be faulted for effort and energy expended.
Well done to all concerned on a magnificent cup run and best wishes to AFC Wimbledon who are away to Plymouth Argyle in the next round.
