Ebanks after his four goals for the under-18s in the FA Youth Cup

14 November 2019

First year scholar Callum Ebanks had a night to remember at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The imposing strikers four goals helped the under-18s clinch a place in the FA Youth Cup third round with an 8-4 victory over Portsmouth.

His brilliantly taken finishes have played a major part in securing what will now be a round three clash with Arsenal.

He could have had a further two goals were it not for last ditch on the line defending from Pompey, but nevertheless his four strikes played a key part in helping the young Robins progress.

"I'm just delighted and happy that I can show the fans and my coaches what I can do," Ebanks said after the game.

"It just shows what is going on at the training pitch is paying off.

"It is like a dream come true to be honest. I've just got to keep doing what I do - score goals hopefully and with the team get us through to the next round."
