Match Preview: Swindon Town U18s vs Newport County U18s

Swindon are set to host Newport in latest league fixture

18 August 2023

Swindon are hoping to bounce back to winning ways, with their latest Youth Alliance League fixture against Newport on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 11am at Beversbrook Sports Facility, and Town will be looking to work on their last result in the Youth Alliance Division, after starting the season with a 2-0 loss to Exeter City U18s two weeks ago.

The young Reds will instead be looking to replicate their performance against SGS College last week, as Town scored an impressive four goals and also kept a clean sheet, in what was much of the standard expected from Town's U18s.

Lead professional development phase coach Sean Wood had this to say about the game tomorrow:

"Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve reflected as a group.

"We have got some important game minutes for the majority of the squad and spent a lot of time refining our patterns and pictures to finish the attack.

"Hopefully, we can be more ruthless tomorrow.’

When asked how they will prepare for this tough encounter, Wood replied with:

‘"The boys have trained really well this week.

"We’ve had a tough training programme and they have engaged within this every day."
