angers Academy midfielder Alex Lowry has admitted that the 9-1 win over Huddersfield Town was “brilliant” for the young Gers – but concedes the Light Blues weren’t tested as much as they hoped.
Lowry scored twice against the Terriers as David McCallum’s side put in a fantastic performance as they continue their preparations for the new campaign.

The midfielder admits there was “more of a physical challenge” and was happy to get minutes ahead of the club’s debut in the UEFA Youth League.
“It was a brilliant performance from the boys,” Lowry told Rangers TV.
“It was good to get some minutes in the legs again and to win 9-1 is brilliant for us.
“It was more of a physical challenge because we feel that we can play any team off the pitch so they didn’t really test us as much as we would’ve liked but we tested ourselves by playing some good one-two touch football.”

Nathan Young-Coombes (2), Matty Yates (2) Cole McKinnon (2) and Kane Ritchie-Hosler all scored as the Gers ran riot in front of goal in an impressive afternoon’s work.
After winning the Club Academy Scotland under-18 league last season, the Gers youngsters will be hoping to build on last term’s success and continue to impress.
