Lichfield City Academy players have moulded into a terrific team in 2019. After winning the Midland floodlit cup & National college league they have started the new season in great form.
6 wins from 6 at u18 level with one OG conceeded and after two FA YOUTH Cup wins the team deserved more with a 2-1 loss in the last minute at RC Warwick. Playing 60 mins of the match with 10 men. Hitting the crossbar in added time.
The young players have high hopes with their education pathway to move onto university, overseas scholarships or the Lichfield Academy HND course in connection with Sutton College BMET.
The 16-18 year old players have also progressed with 1 loss in their last 5 games at u21 level. The team & individuals are performing well.
