Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony let off steam on Twitter last night (November 16) after watching the Under 18 side bow out of the FA Youth Cup.
Jack Collison’s side lost 3-1 in the second round of the competition at Oxford City and MacAnthony was not impressed.
He wrote on Twitter: “I’m absolutely raging after watching our Under 18s lose that cup game. Well done Oxford City but we should been five up by half-time. We capitulated in the second half.
“For the amount of money invested in our youth set-up that was a massive failure again tonight and it’s an area of the club that seriously needs attention from me in the months to come!”
Posh led early on through 16 year-old Jack Gurney, but three goals after the interval gave City their seventh win in the competition and set up a third round trip to Gillingham.
Posh: Elsom, Freestone, Jarvis, Goode, Connor, Alban-Jones (sub Shackleton 79min), Gurney, Gow (sub Stump 66min), Penfold, Barker, Douglas. Unused subs: Cartwright, Hart, Borg.
