Posh Youngsters Defeat Dons

12 October 2015

The Posh under 18s continued their recent good run with a 2-0 victory over MK Dons.

The Peterborough United under 18s made it four wins in a row (including two mid-week friendly victories) with a 2-0 success over local rivals Milton Keynes Dons at the Mick George Training Academy.

Goals from defender Alfie Connor and attacker Kweku Lucan secured all three points for Kieran Scarff's men as Posh recorded their second successive shutout.

Scarff said: 'I was pleased with the way the lads applied themselves. We looked a threat on the counter attack and defended well when we had to. I have a lot of respect for MK Dons because over a number of years they have been consistent with their footballing philopshy and you know when you come up against them that they will have a lot of possession.

'Alfie Connor has scored quite a few goals at different age groups within the Academy, but that was his first goal since the pre-season fixture with Cambridge United. He might not be the biggest but he is aggressive in the air and it was a powerful header.

'MK Dons ended the game strongly, but we still looked a threat and probably could have scored two or three more goals. I was pleased for Kweku Lucan - he has done well since joining us. He can play on the wing or as he has been doing in recent weeks, in attack. He is quick and gives us a different dimension. He came in initially on trial, but is with us now and we are looking forward to watching him develop.'

Posh: Elsom, Maslen-Jones, Forde, Humphrey, Connor, Ferrier, Lee, Hood, Jarvis, Moore, Lucan. Subs: Baldry, Gale, Alban-Jones, Stump, Peace.
