FREEVIEW: Grimsby Town YTH 1 Mansfield YTH 3

19 September 2016

OUR YOUTH team went down 3-1 to Mansfield Town in a Youth Alliance League game on Saturday.

At 2-0 down the Mariners got back into the game with a belter from Jamie Goddard, only for an individual error  to allow the Stags in again to seal the victory.

Speaking to, coach Andy McMillan said: "I thought we deserved to get something out of the game and probably a draw would have been a fair result. 

"Individual errors cost us - three mistakes cost us three goals. We had some good bits of play , but couldn't hold the ball up well enough to bring others into play.  Mansfield were big, strong and well organised. 

"Obviously with beating Lincoln the week before, we thought here we go, we've started to turn the corner.  But with young lads you are going to get hot and cold. We came back down to earth on Saturday against a well organised team."

Summarising, Andy added: "We need to work on our hold up play, bringing others into play with less touches. We also need better delivery from wide areas. Leading up to the 18 yard box we are absolutely fine,  playing some really nice football. " 

Watch the highlights of the game.
