HEREFORD Pegasus manager Mick Panniers praised the attacking threat of his youngsters as they ran riot with a 6-0 win over Newent Town AFC.

Harrison Summers, George Andrews and Carlos Moreira each scored a brace as Pegasus controlled the tie and gave their chances of progressing in the Bluefin Sports Challenge Cup a boost.

“I thought we played well especially offensively," said Panniers.

“It was a tough tackling game and I was a bit disappointed the referee didn’t get hold of it a bit more.

“Going forward we’ve got four 17 year olds on the pitch at the end so it’s good that the youngsters are coming through and competing at this level.

“We are pleased. We’re defending well and we’re looking good offensively."


Teenager Summers scored two and created more chances.

Panniers praised him and his fellow youngsters for their performance.

“He’s a good player (Harrison Summers) and he will only get better," added Panniers.

“He’s only 16 so he’s got a lot of time to improve, it will just be a case of trying to keep him really.

“I’m happy with his performance and all the youngsters. Carlos (Moreira) had a good game and we looked solid.

“We’ve brought in two young full-backs which has given us a bit of energy so I’m very pleased.”

Pegasus now how a tough game against Malvern Town on Tuesday night before hosting Wellington on Saturday.

Two go through to the knockout stages of the competition

“It’s good but a few too many games, every Tuesday and Saturday," added Panniers.

“I just think if the league wanted us to play this really they should have let us sign players on after March 31 to play in it.

“There are a lot of players locally that we could have signed that haven’t got any football as their leagues have finished.

“We’ll use this to try and build for next year.”
