Potters boss in attendance as young guns agonisingly beaten...
NATHAN JONES ended his first full day as Stoke City manager by watching the U18s in FA Youth Cup action.
Jones joined members of his coaching staff at the bet365 Stadium to watch last night’s fourth round tie against Everton.
He witnessed a dramatic cup encounter in which the young Potters went 2-0 down early on but hit back in the second half to force extra-time.
The added 30 minutes could not separate the two sides but unfortunately Richard Walker’s men fell short in the resultant penalty shoot-out, losing 3-1.
Jones will be back on the training pitches at Clayton Wood this morning as he prepares for tomorrow’s Championship clash with Brentford at Griffin Park (kick-off 3pm).
