Bluebirds Return From Hull With Hard-Earned Draw

Professional Development League under-18

Hull City 0, Cardiff City 0

The young Bluebirds faced a Hull City team coached by former Cardiff City and Wales defender Terry Boyle on Humberside.

This was a first Professional Development Under-18 League match for both teams and there were few chances.

Home goalkeeper David Robson has produced a couple of decent saves, tipping a Joel Bagan effort onto the bar, while Luke Rees missed the Tigers’ best chance.

Siyabonga Ligendza had a shot cleared off the line with 80 minutes gone.

Boyle made 168 appearances for the Bluebirds between 1986 and 1989, scoring seven times. 

Boyle retired from playing in 2001 at the end of a 20-year career.

He has been at Hull City since 2014, and also acts as coach/educator for the Uefa A License.

The next PDL under-18 fixture for Cardiff City is at home against Crewe at Cardiff International Sports Campus next Saturday (11am).

Hull City u-18 (v Cardiff): Robson, Thompson, Leake, Wood, Smith, Bayram, Cove, Lovick, Rees, Snelgrove, Jarvis. Subs: Fisk, Beckett, Best, Green, Ward.
