FCV gain the professional experience at Doncaster Rovers
FCV Academy travelled to Doncaster Rovers on Friday, taking on the English Football League club's youngsters in a friendly.
The game was played at Doncaster's Cantley Park Training Ground, with Rovers first-team manager Darren Ferguson keeping a watchful eye on proceedings.
Although FCV were on the wrong end of a 6-0 scoreline, the players can be happy with their performance against the professional outfit. They created good chances in both halves, but were denied by some solid Rovers defending.
The match presented a fine opportunity for the Academy players to pit themselves against a professional side, showing them the level that they aspire to play at.
All at FCV would like to thank Darren Ferguson and his staff for the fine hospitality received on the trip, in particular Kieren Scarfe, John Schofield and Paul Stancliffe – we hope to repeat the experience in the future.
