Dorchester 0 Argyle Academy XI 0

WHILST an Argyle development side comprising several professionals and augmented with under-18 talent were winning 8-0 at Tavistock...

...another, younger, Argyle line-up were earning a wholly creditable 0-0 draw at Dorchester. 

The Pilgrims' starting line-up included two second year-apprentices, five first years, three community trust players and one under-16; the game concluded with four under-16s on the pitch. 

Academy head Kevin Hodges said: "This was a very pleasing performance and a good result considering the lack of experience in the team. We created some good chances, with Alex Fletcher, Connor McAuley and Connor Rush all going close to scoring along, and it was pleasing to keep a very well deserved clean sheet."
