Eddie Jackson: It was good to get the win

13 March 2021

Under-18s defender Eddie Jackson was pleased with the team’s performance upon his return to the side in their 4-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

The defender helped keep Arsenal to chances few and far between, seeing the Canaries take all three points over the Gunners.

Speaking on the result, Jackson described how happy he was to get the win after his return to the U18s, adding that it’s just the start as he looks to continue working hard for future games.

“It’s good being back, I’ve been back for about two weeks and this is my first game back this year, so it’s good to get a win and luckily I didn’t feel too unfit, so that’s a bonus as well! It was good to get the win, now we’re looking to carry it on.

“I’d say it was a seven out of ten performance from me, but that’s what I could do, I’ll continue to train hard and get that team chemistry back for the upcoming games.”

Asked about the last meeting between the Canaries and Arsenal, Jackson says Saturday’s result was the right way to bounce back, but he was disappointed to concede, adding that the team are now rearing to go for their FA Youth Cup clash with West Ham.

“I did play in that loss; on that day we weren’t that good. It just shows when we are on our game, we can properly take it to most teams. It was a good 4-1 win; we could’ve scored more, and it was a shame about their goal though.

“It was a shame to concede, they had a few chances and we did do well, but it just wasn’t for us. Now, we’re just focused on next week and taking it to West Ham in the FA Youth Cup.

“We’re absolutely buzzing for it, we’re training with some of the Under-23s to get that team bond back, so when we play West Ham, we can all be a bit more gelled, work hard and hopefully go through to the next round, which we’re aiming to do with high hopes.”
