Young guns news - Sunday 23 Jan 11

Jonathan Bond (Watford - goalkeeper) Was between the sticks as the Hornets beat Wigan this week in the FA Youth Cup.  Bond made several saves as his side hung on to a 3-2 win. 

Kayleden Brown (WBA - striker) Has joined Port Vale on a 28 day loan along with team mate Romain Sawyers as Jim Gannon looks to add fresh faces to his squad.  "I have watched them play in the reserves and am confident both will give us an extra edge in our squad, especially at a time when our squad is depleted by injuries. They will be hungry to be involved and will also offer competition for places at the club." Jim Gannon, Port Vale manager.

Ryan Doble (Southampton - striker) Scored one and picked up an assist as the Saints U21's beat Palace 2-1 this week.  Doble scored from the spot after being fouled in the box.  Johnathan  Williams (Crystal Palace - midfielder) started for the opposition. 

Michael Doughty (QPR - midfielder) Struck twice from a more advanvced position but could not prevent his side from losing 3-2 to at Peterborough last weekend.  The Wales international struck from 12 yards and from the spot, but it was not quite enough. 

Jordan Holt (Hull - defender) And his fellow team mates unfortunately will not be progressing to the next round of the FA Youth cup as the Tigers lost 3-2 to Rushden and Diamonds. 

Aristote Nsiala (Everton - defender) Returned to Everton after a succesful loan spell at Macclesfield Town.  "Toto's done really well for us," he said. "He's an exciting, young prospect and I've no doubt he'll do well in the game. I look forward to watching how his career progresses with interest." - Gary Simpson, Macclesfield manager.

Josh Roberts (Blackpool - defender) Was back on youth duty after his FA Cup senior duty experience a few weeks ago.  Roberts played the full 90 as Blackpool beat Birmingham to progress to the next round of the FA youth cup. 

Young guns news - Monday 17 Jan 11

Dan Alfei (Swansea City - defender) Picked up a start and the man of the match award as the Swans coasted past Colchester in the FA Cup last Saturday.  Alfei a star during Wales U19's Euro qualifiers played 90 minutes in the 4-0 win.  He was joined in the starting XI by Jazz Richards (Swansea - defender) and the visiting bench included Tom Bender (Colchester - defender) who was an unused sub.  

Mark Bradley (Rotherham - midfielder) Is being sent out on loan by manager Ronnie Moore to try and recapture some form. 
'He is a quality player but every player has a dip in form and I don't think we've seen the best of him and he has to knuckle down." - Ronnie Moore, Rotherham manager

Troy Brown (Ipswich - defender) Had a rough day at The Bridge as Ipswich lost 7-0 to Chelsea in the FA Cup.  Brown started and played 90 minutes as the Tractor boys crashed out.

Jake Cassidy (Wolves - striker) Scored with a clinical finish as the youth team faced Everton in the FA Youth Cup this week.  His goal drew Wolves level but it was not to be enough as his side lost 2-1 to an Everton team with Connor Roberts (Everton - goalkeeper) between the sticks.  Jordan Cranston (Wolves - defender) also featured.   

George Colson (Portsmouth - midfielder) Was a second half sub as Pompey crashed out 3-2 to Man Utd in the FA Youth Cup.  Colson is a former Wales U16 international. 

David Cornell (Swansea - goalkeeper) Will spend the rest of the season on loan at Port Talbit as Bredan Rodgers looks to get him some senior game experience.

Michael Doughty (QPR - midfielder) Made a surprise appearance as QPR went down 1-0 at Blackburn in the FA Cup last weekend.  The Wales U19 international came off the bench with a minute to go in the 90.  

Iain Edmunds (Shrewsbury - defender) Scored his sides first as the Shrews youth team beat Macclesfield 2-0 to return to winning ways.  The youth team is over seen by former Aston Villa and Cardiff centre half David Hughes.

Aaron Holloway (Bristol City - defender/midfielder/striker) Struck a volley from 22 yards that nestled in the bottom corner as the reserves beat Forest Green Rovers.  Holloway started this game in midfield.   

Alex Nicholson (Newcastle - defender) Played 90 minutes as the youth team cruised to a 6-2 win over Dulwich Hamlet in the FA Youth Cup last week.  Nicholson is a former Wales U17 international.  

Patrick Otte (Middlesbrough - defender) Played 90 minutes for the reserves as they beat Grimsby 4-1 this week.  Otte could have picked up an assist but for poor finishing. 

Josh Rees (Arsenal - midfielder) Scored the equaliser as the Arsenal U18's came back from 1-0 down to grab a point against Southampton last weekend.  

Josh Roberts (Blackpool - defender) the Flint born left footed defender was a sub as Ian Holloway shuffled his pack for the FA Cup trip to Southampton. The second year scholar made it on to the field with just under 15 minutes and will have enjoyed his first team experience despite the 2-0 loss.  

Jake Taylor (Reading - midfielder) Scored for the first time since returning from knee injury against Colchester.  Taylor sealed the win as the Royals won 2-0. 

Sanchez Watt (Arsenal/Leeds - striker) Got a chance to impress new Wales manager Gary Speed at The Emirates on Saturday as he took on his parent club in the FA Cup.  The striker is Welsh qualified and Speed knows that strength in depth will be vital so he could well go to speak to players like Watt to try and get more strength in depth.
