Report: Bristol City U23s 6-1 Newport County U23s

City Under-23s produced a dominant display to thrash Newport County 6-1 at Spytty Park.

The development group responded in the best possible fashion to their 4-0 defeat at Charlton Athletic by dishing out a drubbing to the Welsh club. 

City led by a single goal at half-time after Jake Andrews fired home following a good move down the right flank. 

Andrews scored again after the break from a stunning free kick, which is fast becoming the youngster’s trademark. 

Tom Meechan gave the hosts hope by reducing the deficit on the hour, but that promise didn’t last. 

Harvey Smith headed in City‘s third goal of the fixture, before Ricardo Rees made it four to kill the game as a contest. 

Shawn McCoulsky, fresh from making his first team debut against Hull City, added a late brace to put the icing on the cake. 

The former Dulwich Hamlet forward scored from the penalty spot, before racing clear to execute a cheeky dink over the goalkeeper to complete the rout. 

“It was a great performance from the boys and we got the reaction we asked for after Monday’s defeat,” said coach Jamie McAllister. 

“We had a number of Under-18s out there but they really stepped up to the plate and we fully deserved our big win.” 

City Under-23s: Wollacott, A.Harper (V.Harper), Nurse, Harvey Smith, Kelly, Morrell (Morton), Reeves, Rees, Andrews, McCoulsky, Edwards (Lyons-Foster). Subs: Carey, Challis.
