Young Pilgrims Lose on Penalties

ARGYLE'S youngsters went out of the FA Youth Alliance League Cup after a penalty shoot-out at Wimbledon on Friday.

Kevin Hodges' Young Pilgrims drew their second-round match 0-0 with the Dons in London, with the game moving straight to the sudden-death decider after 90 minutes.

Argyle missed their first penalty and scored the next four, but were unable to prevent Wimbledon from converting all five of their spot-kicks.

"It is very disappointing," said Kevin afterwards. "We were the better side and finished very strongly and created some good chances, especially towards the end of the game.

"The boys did very well and their fitness levels on a very hot day were impressive. 

"It is a useful learning-curve for them and we can take a lot out of the game."
