Proud John

12 December 2013

ARGYLE manager John Sheridan has added his voice to the chorus of praise for the Pilgrims’ youth team after a bravura performance in this week’s FA Youth Cup tie at Aston Villa.

The youngsters were beaten 4-3 by the Premier League outfit, coming from behind before being beaten by a late goal.

John said: “They were very unlucky – Villa are probably one of the favourites to go on and win the competition. I don’t think people expected too much and us to go there and nearly win the game against a good Premiership side that, over the years, have produced so many players.

“It was a team effort, and full credit to the players. It was a great effort to try and get into the next round and a great shame they didn’t.”
