Reserves in Friendly Win

Birmingham City’s Development side beat Conference North new boys Leamington FC 1-0 last night in a friendly at the New Windmill Ground.

The Leamington FC official site reports that a fairly strong Blues side, featuring the transfer listed Peter Lovenkrands and Hayden Mullins along with Marcos Painter managed to overcome the Brakes thanks to a late goal from Reece Hales.

The Brakes featured former Blues defender Sam Oji along with former Villa striker Stefan Moore and will consider themselves unlucky not to have kept Blues to a draw.

The development squad kick off their campaign in Professional Development League division two on Monday August 19 with a game against Sheffield United at Wast Hills.

    Lee Clark’s experience of gaining promotion from the 2nd tier of English football goes back to the 1992/93 season with Newcastle Utd..
    Lee was a young player who played all 46 games that season under Kevin Keegans’s management. Newcastle won promotion with 96 points averaging 2 goals a game.
    Another young player was Steve Watson, the Ass.Manager was Terry McDermott and the coach was Derek Fazackerly.
    Incidentally that was the season Blues escaped relegation on the last day of the season with a Paul Moulden goal against Charlton.

      • Richard Granfield says:

        Terry McDermott does attract derogatory comments from people who are not in possession of the facts.
        Terry has been either Assistant Manager or Coach to Kevin Keegan (twice), Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Glen Roeder, Sam Allardyce as well as Lee Clark.
        That’s quite a CV.

    • DiscoPete says:

      I remember how good a player McDermott was for Liverpool. A top top midfielder. Anyone remember how many trophies he won?

      • Richard Granfield says:

        Terry won…………..25 England Caps
        6 League Championships
        3 European Cups
        1 Super Cup
        3 League Cups
        1 UEFA Cup
        He also won the PFA and FWA Player of the Year Trophy in 1980.

    The next sale lot Mark

  • Tony says:

    Dont want no digs at Tom

  • Tony says:

    How come by the time I get here everones gone,

  • Tony says:

    This is too good to waste on an empty room however, Mcdermott was sacked by Newcastle because he was too close to (I would just love it Keegan). for whom he was agony heart, as he was with Dalgleish
    He was employed in a dual role as part time trainer, and court jester , he also was told if he wanted to do something useful he should fetch the sarnies, from m&s which he duly did.
    The guy who told him that and in fact elbowed him out of the way on the touchline in a couple of matches was none other thannnnnnnnn wait for it Chris Houghton.
    as if that wasnt enough he had a very silly haircut, as did his mate unlike myself who had black wavy hair mmmmmm lol god I was lovely still am really.

    • KeepRightcroydOn says:

      How long did it take you to compose this tripe Tony? You keep slagging off Terry Mac and Faz in spite of the fact that you have no idea what they do behind the scenes. Give them a break mate.

      • mark says:

        seconded there mate, imo i believe clark and his backroom staff will probably leave legacy…………

        • StaffsBlue says:

          We all have our opinions, be they right or wrong. That’s what debate is all about. But, I think that if you make a statement that you claim to be true (whether it is or not)…. you should at least have the proof to back it up. Otherwise, like Tom Ross, you tend to look a bit silly.

  • Tony says:

    Google him you will see

    • almajir says:

      Second hand opinions, as always Tony. If you don’t know for yourself – ie it’s not from your own eyes, you don’t know for a fact. And that, my friend, is it.

  • Tony says:

    then applies to all your information too then Dan? all I have wrote was from a guardian jounalist.

    • almajir says:

      Tony – I’m honest. If I see something, I’ll say I’ve seen it with my own eyes. If I’m going on what I’ve been told, I’ll say “I understand” or “I’ve been told”. It’s up to you to decide whether to believe me or not.

      I HAVE seen Fazackerly and McDermott with my own eyes and I’ve not seen anything to suggest that you are right.

  • Tony says:

    Always thought Napoleon lost the battle of Waterloo but guess I was wrong because I didnt see it with my own eyes.
    What I have written was from an article by Louise Taylor for the guardian, I read to learn as we all do, Mcdermots nickname was black box he led a charmed life

  • Sam jones says:

    Very impressed with the goalkeeper Callum Preston. Pull one superb save off!!
