Reuben? Was at St George in NPL2 last year, scored 25 in 24 games in their u20s. Also scored against us in first grade!

If you don't mind, I'd like to share some stats from this kid this Y-League season.

He's played 6 games in the Y-League and has subsequently scored 6 goals. He's set up one goal and averages 2.0 key passes per game, very impressive for a centre forward.

He's predominantly right-footed but is very capable with his left, has averaged over 70% of his passes. He also averages over 1.0 fouls won per game.

He, apparently, is also a competent ball-winner.

I'm very impressed with Kuol and have raved about him for quite some time. If it's at all possible, I'd like to see some minutes off the bench because, hell, at least he can score. I'm very excited to see him on the field as I feel he may be another wonderkind sitting under Alan's radar, waiting for his chance.

Point is, I'm down!

Still looked very raw and was poor with his head when i saw him. But i saw aggression and self confidence which is good.

I would like to see him play 90 mins FFC. When are Yoof at Pluim Fulham?
Will be CCMA now wont it? The 8 game NYL farce is over. Will always try to get to as many as I can (CCM never open the bar and make people feel welcome like CCU do but you just have to take your own)
No doubt someone will post the fixtures
Thought Monty did a decent job of clearing out the rubbish and getting them playing well last season. No club championship for promotion so win the league and up you go.I note that Anton said he doesnt care about promotion but we will attract kids who are much better if we go up

3-2 win at home today v Hakoah
2-1 up and then a Pearce special to give away a penalty.
Luckily Hakoah gave us anther pen to make it 3-2 and they hung on well to close the game out .
Hakoah were very physical and decided to kick their younger opponents off the pitch- it didnt work. Quite how they ended with 11 I'm not so sure
Kuol scored twice. Him, Hatch and (as always) Hall were the standouts. Khoury very quiet for most of the game
Monty is turning them into proper footballers who are learning to run into the corner, foul and do what it takes to win.
Very entertaining games to watch and while I dont think the 3 obvious standouts are ready, they hopedully will be in time.
Not sure why CCM choose not to promote the academy - its a bright spot in a sea of gloom that they have at least 1 side that can compete
After 2 rounds we are 3rd
