Bodmin 2 Argyle u18s 0

ARGYLE'S youngsters suffered their first defeat of the pre-season campaign against a strong Bodmin side...

...but the scoreline did not necessarily reflect the game. 

The Young Pilgrims had plenty of chances to hit back after the home side had taken a 2-0 lead, but either could find the target, or found veteran, former Premier League goalkeeper Kevin Miller on top form. Alex Battle and Alex Fletcher combined to send one shot close for Argyle, and Battle also struck the crossbar, but it was not to be. 

Academy boss Kevin Hodges described the fixture, watched by first team manager Derek Adams, as a "pleasing performance; one in which we held our own," despite the defeat.
