U18's Fixtures for 2017/2018

These lads are getting some high praise from the likes of @Sid James Fan Club and it will as @Henry Irving has commented, be very interesting to see how they get on over these next few years.

It may be useful to try to keep all U18's content in one central location for this season.

Thanks to @tommy12317 and @Sid James Fan Club and any others that can offer insight from training and matches they go to watch the U18's playing in.

  • Somebody add a fixtures link?
  • A bit of chat from another thread:

    What makes you say that @tommy12317 ?

    Been a lot of good U18 sides recently.

    Would like to see pics and read more about the games and players

    Henry, I also agree with @tommy12317. This group, in particular the second year scholars, were consistently strong from U9 onwards, playing the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and would win on a consistent basis. They have won National titles and have been a constant thorn to the bigger London sides over the years. The Charlton academy coaches for example, have over the years all wanted to coach them for more than one season..

    As they have got older, the group has never really played consistently together due players joining different age groups or long term injuries.

    I really hope they get a good FA youth cup run this year, as I really think they can do well in that competition, if they are able to put the right side out. Traditionally Steve etc, do tend to pick the strongest side, so it could be interesting.
    My sense is with all the players fit and available they should equally on paper walk the league, but here, we have to consider the development of the first years and new scholars for next season, so again the side will tend to chop and change.
    Good to hear.

    What would be the strongest U18 side in your opinion @Sid James Fan Club ?

    Interested in hearing whose coming through and what they are like.



    Good question, sorry not able to put in pitch format!
    My initial view is you would firstly pick all the second years.

    Thats........
    GK Ed Harvey
    LB Jordan Zemura
    CB Harry Pollard
    CB Sam Nwosu
    RB Dan Birch
    CM Ben Dempsey
    CM Brendan Sarpong Wiredu
    RM Luke Carey
    LM Alfie Doughty
    10 Albie Morgan
    CF Alex Willis

    They could change the shape to have Luke up front with Alfie and Alex and have Albie drop into midfield. Apart from one or two players that have left or been on trial, this has been the strongest line up for a good few seasons. Goal threats spread well across the team as well. All of these could get pro deals in my view.

    Carey | Willis | Doughty

    Cheers @Sid James Fan Club

    Will be interesting to dig this thread up in a few years time and see how many have made it.

    That reads like a 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 moving to 4-3-3

    @Admin Can we change thie thread title and make this about the U18s this year? @AFKABartram @cabbles

    that would be a nice story ;-)
    does the owner believe we can win anything with Kids??!
    I think there are some real prospects in the group. Would like to see them give it go, but you see with the loan buys, clubs, managers don't always believe they have it to hand already and go to other clubs....
  • Personally I would love to see more U18'S matches like I used to, but one of the prices I pay after not having a season ticket following over 40 years of having one, is that entry to Sparrows Lane is denied.
    Oh well, my own fault.

    Really? that's not on at all.

    I've heard good things about Jeremy Sarmiento but also he is in high demand...and it might be hard to hold on to him

    Any more detail on him, or just that?

    quite logical really with all the potential Jimmy Savilles dont you think? also other clubs trying to poach youngsters
  • And Brendan would never play CM

    Sorry not sure I agree with that
    He's played there since he was 8 years old. He had a stint for short time at right back last season and the one before that, but CM in whatever description, iis his position.
    Sounds like Timmy should stick to taking photos. :lol:
  • He plays lw for 23s but okay then and yeh its mainly because of other clubs scouts
    Sarmiento away for 6 weeks with Ecuador in a south American cup

    He's there playing for England although he has dual citizenship and is also eligible to play for Ecuador according to Twitter
  • 10:30 KO Millwall Training Ground
  • Great 3-2 win today- went 3-0 up when they play well they are so good. Luke back on the pitch for the last 5 minutes!
  • Sounds like a great start then we did almost nothing the rest of the game, shame as a bigger win would have felt awesome.

  • Was exactly like that unfortunately when we turn it on- nearly unbeatable! But we go again Saturday- Ipswich at home! Youth Cup is the big chance to support us!
  • Who or what is next up for the little Addicks?
