FA Youth Cup: Bournemouth and Carlisle Breeze Through as Gills Miss Out

Although it's very early stages, this is the trophy that all the youngsters want their hands on

Bournemouth needed extra-time last night to see themselves safely through to the next round of the FA Youth Cup.

Harrison Gilkes and Charlie Davis scored the necessary goals during that time to send them through 4-2 winners over Plymouth Argyle.

Alex Moth’s first half double saw Bournemouth enter the break with a two goal advantage.

Plymouth slowly crawled their way back into the game during the second-half and equalised through goals from Tyler Harvey.

Bournemouth keeper Chad Collins denied Dan Hart’s penalty during the closing stages of extra-time to dismiss any chance of a Plymouth comeback and see them through to the second round.

Elsewhere, Carlisle ran out 4-1 winners against Sheffield Wednesday.

Brad Potts and Dave Symington put them two nil ahead before the break and goals from James Clarey and a second from Symington could not be cancelled out by a single consolation goal from a mishit cross.

The biggest shock of the first round came as non-league Hayes and Yeading sent out Gillingham.

The only goal of the match came from Max Hubbard to insure that Gillingham would be knocked-out in the first round for the second consecutive season.

Dereham Town almost defeated Leyton Orient but missed out thanks to an extra-time winner by Joe Foley.
