Gills slip to a 2-0 defeat at Stevenage in the Youth League

Stevenage v Gillingham (League) – 19.08.14

Although we lost 2-0 this was another good performance by my young team; two mistakes cost us the game but the effort was very good and with a little bit more quality in the final third we could of easily won the game.

We started the match playing with a 4-4-2 diamond formation but reverted to a 3-4-1-2 in the second half and really played well.

Defensively we looked solid and going forward we looked a threat, we conceded two goals just before half time through individual mistakes but overall another pleasing performance.

Gills: Chris Haigh, Callum Emptage, Sam Stewart, Joe Nougbele, Riccardo Thompson, Mitchell Dickinson, Dan Adams, Greg Cundle, Harry Stanard, Bradley Stephenson, Ross Ibbertson.

Subs: Max Kilman, Jake O’Brien, Sam Lawford. 

F/T: 2-0
