Now that the international break is over, time to focus on club matters once more.
And what better way to get back into the swing of things than by victory for the U23 side.
They beat their Barnsley counterparts 2-0 at Thorp Arch yesterday afternoon, with goals from Ryan Edmondson and Jordan Stevens securing the victory for the young Whites. However it was the display of 18-year-old Edmondson that got most people talking, it was Edmondson’s second goal of the season as he finished off a move that included some nice play down the wing from Liam McCarron.
Whilst his finish wasn’t exactly the most difficult to put away, it was still enough to entice a few people into thinking that he should start getting some minutes with the senior side sooner rather than later.
With Eddie Nketiah set to miss out on this weekend’s game against Luton Town, it’s not impossible to think that a spot might open up on the bench for him, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Looks like a natural finisher…… ????♂️

Look forward to when we start to use Edmondson, last year scored for fun and this year still doing the business. Will be a great career for him, just knows where the net is

Why isnt Edmondson in first team, its bewildering. he scores for fun at u23 level. It might be just what first team needs pace , the will. Hes a natural goal scorer.

Edmondson on a 1-touch finish is lethal. Our under 23's are still class to watch. #LUFC

Will Ryan Edmondson break into the first team this season?
Now that would be a pretty bold move it must be said.
