Walsall Slip to Defeat in Opening Youth Alliance Cup Outing

Walsall's Under-18s were back in action on Saturday morning as they played host to Doncaster Rovers in their opening Youth Alliance Cup group game.
The young Saddlers, who will also face Shrewsbury Town, and Lincoln City in their cup group, have endured a difficult start to their 2018/19 campaign having drawn one and lost two of their opening three league games, and were hoping to kick-start their campaign as they welcomed Donny to Ray Hall Lane.

Sadly for Graham Biggs side, their difficult start continued as, despite taking the lead via a Jacob Walton strike after sixty-six minutes of play, goals from Myron Gibbons (70'), and Brandon Horton (81') were enough for Rovers to begin the group campaign with a win.

Walsall are next in action next Saturday as they play host to Tranmere Rovers in the EFL Youth Alliance.
