    Anthony Scully (F Lincoln b.1999)

    Didn't find a thread for Scully - in the excitement about Idah breaking his league duck, it's worth noting that, one level down, Scully became the first Irish scorer in the English league this season, nabbing the opener in Lincoln's 2-0 win over Oxford United, which brings his tally from the start of his senior league career to three goals in six games: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/54038014

    Great to see another one on the production line coming through. Sounds like a high pressing forward by the “terrier” references below and obviously has an eye for goal. Him and Connolly sound similar, which could be interesting haranguing future defences.

    Astounded by the inclusion of Roughan at such a young age, especially at that level. Sounds like he acquitted himself well after being targeted by some heavy challenges early on (as you’d expect), but got up the line well with some good deliveries into the box. Seems like a nice kid as well:

    Most encouraging thing is that the young kids are actively taking the Dara O’Shea route and looking to build the character toughening experience early rather than cosset themselves in the U23s which looks to have been to the detriment of Masterson and potentially Kelleher.

    RE Roughan: I remember there being a newspaper story a few years ago of Lincoln looking to hire a Gaelige teacher, in the hope it would give them an advantage in helping to attract Irish kids across

    The Irish used to Pick a Lot of Potatoes in Lincoln if that would have been in any way helpful ! !

    Yes the Irish teacher thing was specifically for Roughan, Lincoln were desperate to sign him but his mum would only let him go over at 16 if he took his Leaving Cert through the club. It was no problem getting tutors for the other subjects but Irish was obviously an issue so they put an advert out. Ended up hiring the wife of an Irish professional rugby coach who was an ex teacher and managed to sign Roughan as a result - and he's now in the first team. He will presumably be sitting the leaving cert next summer.

    Knows where the goal is to be fair to him, he was banging them in for West Ham under 23s last year and has continued to score regularly since moving up to men's football. Well worth a look at under 21 level with Connolly and Idah stepping up to the seniors.

    Lincoln got overrun by Liverpool tonight and Scully had limited opportunities, but did pretty well in the second half, setting up one goal and almost setting up another - got in behind the Liverpool defense once and managed to turn the ball on goal, only for Adrian to smother his effort. Looks promising and could very well be a Championship player in the next couple of years

  11. Thanks From:
