Our young Blues welcomed the Bantams to Kingsmeadow last Saturday afternoon in the third round of the FA Youth Cup.
We were the side on top early on and we made that dominance count by scoring an opener through Castledine. He slotted past the goalkeeper to give us our first goal of this year’s competition.
It did not take long for us to grab our second, as the dangerous Mendel-Idowu did well to keep his composure and slot into an empty net after rounding City goalkeeper Thomas Myles.
Isaac Robinson halved the deficit though midway through the first period, as his free-kick was struck to perfection and left Ted Curd with no chance.
A sour note during the second half was that Travis Akomeah had to be stretchered off with what appears to be a leg injury.
Our young Blues scored quickly after the restart of his treatment, as Silcott-Duberry was on hand to tap in after fine work from Louis Flower.
That was how the game would end as a comfortable 3-1 victory sees our boys through safely into the next round.
