Green Rovers 1 Young Greens 1

15 January 2018

A YOUNG Argyle side came from behind to gain a point from a 1-1 draw at Forest Green Rovers - their first draw of the season - in an EFL Youth Alliance encounter.

Argyle went behind when Andrew Burn was caught trying to play the ball out of his area for Rovers to open their account after just six minutes.

Midfielder Cameron Sangster was unlucky to see his 18th-minute drive from the edge of the area come back off the crossbar before Klaidi Lolos's shot deflected just wide of the home goal.

Argyle were unlucky not to level the score six minutes before the break as Jude Boyd's fine effort flew just wide.

The visitors changed their system for the second half and proceeded to enjoy far more possession but it was not until on the hour that they made that tell.

Tom Purrington's stinging effort was blocked by the Rovers' goalkeeper but Joe Seery reacted the fastest to fire the ball home from a narrow angle to celebrate his debut with a goal.

Sangster had the opportunity to give his side all three points, 20 minutes from time, as he lifted his shot over the advancing 'keeper but unfortunately it also cleared the crossbar.

"Despite a poor start, we had our moments in the first half when we put our game together," said Academy Director Kevin Hodges.

"We persevered and worked hard and that was very pleasing as we were the more threatening side in the latter stages of the game."

Argyle: Harry Townsend; Isaac Burdon, Jacob Evans (Ryan Law 70), Tom Purrington, Andy Burn, Harry Downing, Jude Boyd (Rio Garside 70), Joe Seery (Luke Jephcott 62), Klaidi Lolos, Cameron Sangster, Billy Craske (Aaron Goulty 80). Substitute (not used): Max Childs.
