Djabi: It's a pleasure to score goals for Fleetwood Town

4 November 2015

Striker netted a brace for Town's youth team

Mamadou Djabi’s second half brace earned the young Cod Army their passage into the second round of the FA Youth Cup on Tuesday night.

The second year scholar opened the scoring after the interval from the penalty spot after Jordan Hancox was brought down.

He then doubled the advantage after Pools were reduced to ten men as he headed Michael Tetteh’s cross beyond James Dawson at the back post.

After the game, he said: “It’s a pleasure to score goals for Fleetwood Town. As a whole we stuck together and were the better side over the 90 minutes.

“As it was the FA Youth Cup we were a bit nervous for the first half hour so we played it safe and just contained them.

“In the second half though we realised we could win this and got out of the blocks quick to do our stuff and win the game.

“To be fair I almost had a heart attack before taking the penalty as I thought if I missed it then we could lose the game.

“We started playing with a bit more freedom then as the goal took a lot of pressure off our shoulders and the sending off helped too.

“We all want to push on in this competition now but also want to go further in the league too, so it’s nice that we’ve got two different competitions to aim for.”
