Town U18's Manager Alan McLoughlin wants his side to concentrate on the task at hand when they take on Yeovil Town in the EFL Youth Alliance South-West Conference on Saturday.

"We play Yeovil Town away on Saturday and the U16’s will play on AstroTurf and the U18’s will play on grass," he told

"We’re expecting a tough fixture because they’ve been doing quite well this year and none of the fixtures are easy this season. 

"It is mentally preparing yourself for the journey down to Yeovil in the minibus because it is a good couple of hours and then getting off the bus, getting ready and going out and performing well.


"Jeremy Newton will watch the U16’s to throw his eye over them and I’m hoping the U18’s impress. 

"The U18’s are coming up to decision time on their pro contracts but the club won’t make any final decisions until at least the transfer window is out of the way and they know where they are in terms of finances for next year. 

"That will determine how many pro contracts are offered for next year so until that time the boys have to knuckle down and try and do as well as they can, starting with the game against Yeovil on Saturday."
