First off, apologies for late report, I listened last night and then all the recent events took over my interest!

Pompey fell at the first hurdle last night, but fell with a sense of pride, our club was in the main represented by a group of lads eager to make a career in football, quite a few come from the local area and bleed blue.

9 teenagers were backed up with 23 year old Eastwood in goal and 35 year old assistant manager Westwood in defence, Ashley Harris the veteran with 5 appearances!

Listening to express last night, Pompey were up against for the first half, shots and corners rained in, but the young lads stood firm, repelling everything thrown at them, Westwood unfortunately limped out the action to further deplete the team, but it was in the last minute of the half when we fell behind, the goal itself was a beauty, Gorman hitting a screamer to leave the young lads with a bigger mountain to climb.

In fairness Plymouth deserved it, Eastwood had pulled of a couple of very decent saves, Grant had hacked off the line and Butler made one great goal saving tackle.

The second half saw a new resolve in Pompey, Dan Thompson and Ashley Harris really set about trying to impose themselves on Plymouth, Maloney who had come on for Westwood almost forcing an equaliser with a blast from an angle that had Cole scrambling.

It wasn't until the dying moments that the score took an uneven look, ex-Pompey man Cowan-Hall heading home and then nick Chadwick blasted in after a slip by Magri, but all in all the young lads did themselves proud.

Since then of course off field matters have again taken over proceedings, but you cannot take the night away from the next generation of Pompey blue.

One and all.
