Argyle Youth 1 Swindon Town 5
ARGYLE’S unpredictable season in the EFL Youth Alliance continued as they followed up a fine midweek display in defeating AFC Bournemouth with a disappointing defeat to Swindon Town at the Manadon Sports Hub on Saturday.
The Robins were the first to show as they took a fifth-minute lead but Argyle required just two minutes to draw level when Rubin Wilson hit a rising drive into the top of the net from the edge of the area.
Unfortunately, the visitors replied with three quick goals to leave Argyle with a mammoth taks on their hands for the second half. Swindon spent most of the second period defending in depth but they caught Argyle out with a goal on the break on 66 minutes.
Argyle continued to have the vast amount of the possession but they could not break down a disciplined Robins’ defence.
"We need to find consistency, both individually and collectively," said Academy Manager Phil Stokes.
Argyle: Harry Townsend, Ali Mansaray (Brandon Pursall 55), Isaac Burdon, Charlie Miller (Carlo Garside 60), Ollie Tomlinson, Jude Boyd, Jarvis Cleal, Jeremiah Medine, Rubin Wilson, Rhys Shirley (Scott Crocker), Rueben Collum. Substitute not used: Tyler Coombes.
