Young guns news - Monday 30 Aug 10

Troy Brown (Ipswich - defender) Enjoyed another Carling Cup run out this week as the Tractor Boys travelled to Gresty Road to play Crewe.  The Crewe line up included Rhys Taylor (Chelsea/Crewe - goalkeeper) but it will be Brown who go through to the next round with Ipswich securing a 1-0 win.

Hal Robson Kanu (Reading - striker) Scored his first senior goal but the game finished with a defeat to Northampton in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.  The Wales international lashed home his first senior goal but the game went to penalties, in which Jake Taylor (Reading - midfielder/forward) made his debut as right back after an injury to Julian Kelly in the second half.  Taylor went on to miss a penalty during the shoot out.

Tom Lawrence (Man Utd - midfielder) Started in midfield as the Red Devils took on Chelsea in the U18 opener last week.  Lawrence played the 90 as Utd won 3-2.

Christian Ribeiro (Bristol City - defnder) Played 90 minutes this week as he starts his road back to full fitness.  The Wales U21 international started against Aldershot in the 4-1 win.

Jonathan Bond (Watford - goalkeeper) Was on the bench on Saturday as the Hornets drew 2-2 with Coventry.  Bond who started for the U21's in Malta is progressing well at Vicarage Road.

Kayleden Brown (Tranmere/WBA - striker) Stepped off the bench as Tranmere drew 0-0 with Huddersfield last weekend.  Brown came on with 15 minutes left to play but neither side could break the deadlock.

Jake Cassidy (Airbus - striker) Has signed for Wolves after impressing for Principality Welsh premiership Airbus in pre season.  After scoring for a Wolves development XI against Telford, the Glan Conwy has now signed a two year deal at Molineux. 

Hal Robson-Kanu (Reading - striker) + Jake Taylor (Reading - striker) Played 90 minutes as the second string drew 1-1 with Leyton Orient on Tuesday night. 

Gerwyn Jones - defender (DC United / Loyola Greyhounds) resumes his college career shortly after captaning DC's Super 20's to qualification to the Nationals. In a pre seaon poll of coaches he was tabbed to the all MAAC team, the only sophomore outfield player named.

Jon Meades (Cardiff City - defender) Has joined FK Moss on loan until the Autumn.  The 18 year old who travelled with the City first team on the pre season tour to Portugal will now look to get some regular first team football for his new club.

Kayne McLaggon (Salisbury - striker) Has signed for Salisbury City after being released from Southampton at the end of last season.  McLaggon had been on trial at several clubs over the summer, including Hereford and a club in Egypt. 

Christian Ribeiro (Bristol City - defender) Returned to action this week with a reserve team run out against Cheltenham Town.  The Wales U21 international played 45 minutes as he looks to shake off the effects of a back problem. 

David Stephens (Hibernian - defender) Was another Wales youth international to make his debut last weekend after coming on for the last 12 minutes.  Hibs won 3-2 in a pulsating encounter. 

Rhys Taylor (Crewe/Chelsea - goalkeeper) Was a very busy man last weekend as Crewe lost 3-2 to Cheltenham.  Taylor has taken on the role of first choice keeper in the abscence of injured Steve Phillips and made some great saves in what would turn out to be a loss for the Railwaymen.

Marc Williams (Wrexham - striker) Is heading to Kidderminster for a three month loan spell.  With Andy Mangan and Andy Morrell ahead of him in the pecking order the move will give the U21 striker valuable game time.

Well, it's that time of year again and the return of YG update.  Thank you for all your support last season, it's gratefully received and very much appreciated - Owain.

Kayleden Brown (WBA - striker) Looks like he is on his way to Tranmere on loan deal this week as he tries to further his footballing education. 

Troy Brown (Ipswich - defender) Was a Welsh youth international who benefited from the Carling Cup this week as the young defender started for Ipswich against Exeter on Tuesday night.   Brown played over an hour in the 3-2 win and will hope for more action in the next round.   

Kai Edwards (Wrexham - defender) Will spend the start of the season on loan at Prestatyn as Dean Saunders looks to get more first team experience for the Wales U19 international.  He will start with a tough game against Welsh Premiership champions TNS.   

Keiron Freeman (Nottingham Forest - defender) Made the bench on Tuesday night as Forest lost 2-1 to Bradford after extra time.  Freeman was an unused sub but will have savoured being around the first team squad on match day. 

Sean Geddes (Walsall - midfielder) Was on the bench for the first game of the season and for the Carling Cup defeat at the hands of Tranmere.  The Tranmere squad on Tuesday night had Jack Mackreth (Tranmere - midfielder) on the bench.

Vinnie Mukendi (Macclesfield - striker) Came off the bench to score his sides third in the 4-3 defeat at Leicester in the Carling Cup.  Mukendi headed in to give his sides some hope which was to be extinguished by the Championship side.

Paul Walker (Northampton - goalkeeper) Was an unused sub as the Cobblers beat Brighton in the Carling Cup this week.  Walker, a former Wales U17 international seems to be the understudy this season and could capitalise if there is an injury or loss of form.  

Joe Walsh (Swansea - defender) Played 90 minutes for the Swans in midweek as they beat Barnet 3-0 in the Carling Cup.  Cardiff born Walsh played left back and can be pleased with his nights shift.
