Posh Youths beaten in cup final at the end of a terrific season
A great season ended in disappointment for Posh Under 18s who were beaten in the final of the Youth Alliance League Cup by Gillingham yesterday (April 10).
The Gills won on penalties after a 2-2 draw. Adler Nascimento and Charlie O’Connell scored the Posh goals.
Posh were hoping to complete a league and cup double having won the South East Division title for the second season in a row.
Posh also reached the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup before losing to Premier League Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Posh youth team boss Matthew Etherington said: “Proud of all of the players that have represented our Under 18 group this season. It wasn’t meant to be today, but the resilience, in difficult circumstances has been incredible. They should be hugely proud of what has been achieved and the progress they’ve made.”
