Some strange things... only four subs. And Iversen is the captain of the U18s. We have a huge list of players at this level, I can't believe there aren't more available.
But I thought Joe Hilton went out on loan last month? To Marine... until the end of the season. Perhaps at this level they are allowed to be recalled for specific games?
