Dons youngsters in fine form

6 August 2012

Matt Cunnington leads the way in win

AFC Wimbledon Under-18s warmed up for their league opener at Portsmouth on Saturday with another impressive win.

Matt Cunnington led the way with a double on Friday as the Dons youngsters beat Histon 5-0. Charlie Fayers, Harlen Basker and George Oakley were also on target for the Under-18s, who start their Football League Youth Alliance campaign this weekend.

Head of Youth, Mark Robinson, is pleased with the way his squad has gelled during the pre-season programme. "It was probably our most impressive 90 minutes during pre-season," he said. "We were playing against a Histon side that included four players with first-team experience. The fitness levels the boys are showing is fantastic and they are playing good football. The players are understanding at an early stage what we want from them. Hopefully, we can take that form into our first match against Portsmouth."
