AFC Bournemouth Under 18’s drew with league leaders Oxford United and close in on a second place finish.

With only one game of the season remaining, a win in their final game will secure second place ahead of Swindon and Yeovil.

Roach told

‘We went two nil down from some poor defending and we took a while to adapt to the conditions of the game.

‘We had a chat at half time and I was delighted with the second half. We used the ball well, created opportunities and could have won the game late on.

‘We had five schoolboys on the pitch by the end of the game and they complimented the rest of the team very well and that bodes well for next season.’
