Andy Myers’ men entered the international window on the back of a strong showing against Arsenal in our second London derby of the season, and they will be hoping to continue that momentum when Derby visit Cobham on Saturday, kick-off 12 noon.
We began our title-winning campaign last term against Saturday’s opponents and Marcel Lavinier scored in the 85th minute to secure victory at Pride Park. The return fixture was a much more eventful affair, Jon Russell helping us get back on level terms after half an hour but the scoreline at half-time read 1-3 to the visitors.
However, Myers’s men were credited on multiple occasions for their ability to fight for points and second-half goals from Clinton Mola and Charlie Brown ensured the young Blues remained undefeated in their quest for glory.
In other news, Under-18 goalkeeper Kelechi Chibueze has departed the club after 10 years in the Academy. He last kept goal for Ed Brand’s team during the 4-1 win over West Ham at Cobham in September. We thank Kelechi for his contribution and wish him well for the future.
