Aldershot Town Academy Manager Ross McNeilly thought that his team were “dominant” against Chippenham Town after his u19 side won 2-0 away on Wednesday 26th February in the National League Youth Alliance.
Aldershot Town started the better of the two teams and they had all of the chances in the first half as it looked like they were going to run rampant.
The Shots had a foothold on the game and looked the more likely to score in the first 10-15 mins of the game and their persistence paid off as they went into a comfortable 2-0 lead.
Jamie White and George Britton gave the visitors the advantage before the interval.
Aldershot Town could’ve been further ahead than they were at the interval if they had taken their chances to extend their lead.
The Shots’ dominance continued from the first-half as they wrote a similar story with complete control throughout the game, as they held out for the 2-0 with very little pressure put against them throughout the contest.
Following the game, Academy Manager Ross McNeilly gave his thoughts on the u19’s performance:
“It was a good victory to be fair but I feel that we could’ve scored a lot more.
“We have to take more chances but the finishing was good enough today to seal the victory and keep ourselves near the top of the table.
“The lads played really well and I can’t seem to fault their performance at all after that. They did what was required of them and got the all-important victory.”
The u19s keep impressing and McNeilly wants them to take that into their next game away to Weston-Super-Mare:
“I still think that we can have a really strong finish come to the end of the season,” he said.
“We’re on a brilliant run and it would’ve been nice to score more in this game but that just goes to show how many chances we are creating at the minute.
“A better run at the start of the season would’ve allowed us to win the league already but we’re not giving up without a fight and I think that we can push for that trophy with the good players that I have in the squad.”
