Academy Notes: Terrell Agyemang

Charlton Athletic U23s midfielder Terrell Agyemang spoke to Valley Gold for Academy Notes after the recent 1-1 draw at home to Watford.

The central midfielder who signed for the Addicks aged 13 through the club’s schools programme describes himself as an energetic, box-to-box central midfielder who manipulates the ball skillfully and plays the game with flair, and told Valley Gold:

“We had a lot of possession and started brightly, creating quite a few chances to score but we lacked the final finish. After the opening period, there was a stoppage of play of around 10-15 minutes, as the referee had to be substituted due to an injury. When the game resumed Watford found their footing in the game and matched us. The first half ended goalless, leaving us with work to do in the second half.

“The start of the second half was to set the mood for the game as we again took complete control but were sloppy at times in possession making an average Watford side look like they still had a chance in the game. Again chances were created, but we still couldn’t take them.

“We were awarded a penalty after Dylan Gavin was taken down in the box. Unfortunately, Aaron Henry missed the resulting spot-kick keeping the scores level at 0-0. As we edged near the end of the game, Watford pinched the ball at the edge of their penalty area and countered rapidly, which resulted in them getting a goal that would surely now give them the victory.

“But we refused to give up and three minutes later equalised from a set-piece. An in-swinging corner from Aaron Henry was met by Dylan Gavin to rescue a point, before we had a great opportunity to snatch all three points when Euan Williams did brilliantly to chase down the defender and take the ball off him, leaving him one-on-one with the goalkeeper, but he saw his effort saved and the final whistle soon followed.”
