FA Youth Cup | Biggs - "The Game Management Wasn’t Good Enough"

Academy Manager Graham Biggs has admitted that his young side must take more responsibility following their disappointing FA Youth Cup - Round One defeat to Doncaster Rovers.
Walsall Academy Manager Graham Biggs has spoken to club journalists following his side's disappointing FA Youth Cup - First Round defeat to Doncaster Rovers, and admitted that the young Saddlers need to learn to manage games after slipping to defeat despite establishing a two-goal lead.

Graham was speaking via the club's official website after his side had conceded three goals in sixteen second-half minutes to slip from being three-one up to being four-three behind, he said; “It was a disappointing result and a mixed game from a performance point of view too. We had a lot of young boys out there tonight but there’s no excuse for players not taking responsibility for themselves and the team at crucial times in the game."


The 53-year-old, who has been part of the Saddlers' Academy since 2000, continued; "The game management wasn’t good enough and it is becoming a regular occurrence in Under-18 and Under-23 games."
