Swindon Town U18s manager David Farrell was thrilled with the resilience shown as his side came back from a two-goal deficit to draw with Cambridge United.

Rhys Wells and Toby Holland were on the scoresheet in the Merit League 1 fixture on the road, which saw the hosts 3-1 up at the interval.

But a game fightback earned a point which Farrell felt was the least they deserved.

“It shows good resilience to come from 3-1 down,” he said. “We were very good second half, and we battled back really well.

“We stuck with them really well and deserved at least a point.”

Farrell added: “We were the better team to be honest, we were just not as good in the two most important areas - the two penalty boxes.

“Everything else in between we played very well, dominated possession and then found ourselves 3-1 down.

“There were lots of positives to take out in that we played really well in possession.

“There were a couple of U16s making their first games so there was a lot to take from it.”

During the week, Town talent Anthony Lynn also spent time on a training camp with Scotland U16s

“He’s been at the training camp for the last three days in Edinburgh,” Farrell said.

“It’s a real positive for him. He’s started off his scholarship fairly, so hopefully it will spur him on over the latter part of the season and do really, really well.

“It’s always a positive when you get a player that’s called away for international duty.

“The lad deserves it, he works hard, he’s got a great attitude, hopefully it will push him on to bigger and better things.”
