Young Shrews Get Praise After Vale Cup Win

Shrewsbury Town boss Graham Turner has praised the club’s youth-team after last night’s nail-biting Midland Youth Cup victory against Port Vale.

Town went through 3-1 on penalties after the match had finished 1-1 after extra-time.

With no goals in normal time, Kaiman Anderson opened the scoring for the Shrews during the first period of extra-time but Vale quickly responded leaving the encounter to be decided by a test of nerve from 12-yards-out.

Sam Molyneux, Anderson and Josh Ginnelly scored the decisive penalties while goalkeeper Shaun Rowley made two saves and Turner said:

“I’m pleased for them, a number of them have been playing in our reserves.”

“I watched the reserves playing against Tranmere last week and some of the youngsters coming out of the youth team into the reserves have done extremely well, so it’s pleasing to see.”

“It’s encouraging for everybody when you go and get results like the one against Port Vale.”
