U18s | PREVIEW: Barnsley Vs Watford

Young Reds' first home game of campa

23 August 2019

Barnsley U18s play their first home game of the Professional Development League campaign when they welcome Watford to the Oakwell Training Ground on Saturday morning.

The young Reds narrowly lost their season opener last weekend, suffering a 4-3 defeat at Queens Park Rangers.

Aiden Marsh bagged a brace and Sezgin Aleksiev netted the other as Barnsley continued their fine goal scoring form from the tail end of the previous campaign.

Watford travel to South Yorkshire sitting top of the south league having plundered nine goals in their first two fixtures. The Hornets thrashed Bolton Wanderers 5-1 before comfortably seeing off Birmingham City 4-0 the following week.

Dominic Hutchinson leads the visitors’ scoring charts with three goals to his name so far, two of which came in his last outing against the Blues.

These two sides met on the opening day last season and, despite falling 2-0 down midway through the first half, the Reds fought back to claim a 3-2 victory courtesy of goals from Harry Gagen, Rudi Pache and Tommy Willard.

You can find out how our U18s fare by watching the game for FREE at the Oakwell Training Ground, kick-off at 11am.

Any supporters wishing to attend this game are politely reminded not to park on Grove Street, but to park in the CK Beckett South Stand car park.
