Hull City Under-23s reach play-off final after dramatic win at Charlton Athletic

Congratulations to our former player of the year Johan Ter Horst - right - and his Hull City Under 23s team-mates on their Professional Development League play-off semi-final victory reported below = and it must have been great for our boy - an avid Charlton supporter - to have scored (with a header of all things!) against the Addicks at the Valley.

The last we heard was that Joh may be released by the Tigers where he has been understandably disappointed by a lack of first team opportunities over the three highly unsettled years the Humberisde club have had to endure during the time that he has been there.

For the record. we'll wish Hull the best of luck in their fight for Premiership survival - but more importantly from an Invicta point-of-view, we'll keep our collective fingers crossed that things really work out well for Johan in the longer term.

We probably can't do better than to reproduce here below this full report of the young Tigers latest success while wishing them every success in the final.

That is against the Professional Development League North winners Sheffeld Wednesday, to whom Hull finished runners-up and takes place at Hillsborough tomorrow, Friday, May 12th..

Wednesday, we understand won the other play-off semi-final 2-1 beating Harry Smith (and oor chairman Paul Morgan's) Millwall.

Hull City's under-23s are just 90 minutes from lifting silverware after they reached the Professional Development League play-off final with a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Charlton Athletic.

An absorbing tie finished goal-less after normal time but a breathless finale at the Valley remarkably saw six goals shared by the two teams. Jarrod Bowen and Johan Ter Horst had given the Tigers what appeared to be a comfortable 2-0 lead early in the extra-time before the game was quickly turned on its head by the goals of Brandon Hanlan, Karlan Ahearne-Grant and Regan Charles-Cook.

It needed Jonathan Edwards' header in stoppage time to eventually make it 3-3, setting up defender Josh Clackstone to be City's hero in the shoot-out. The defender's calm spot-kick secured a 5-4 win on penalties and tees up an all-Yorkshire final against Sheffield Wednesday next week.

Fitting

The nature of City's progress was perhaps fitting. Twelve months after cruelly losing the Premier League Under-21s Cup final on penalties to West Ham United, a timely show of nerve means Jon Beale's side can now look forward to another shot at glory. City's under-23s are also famed for leaving it late and again that proved to be the case in South London. Six days after it needed a stoppage-time goal to earn the win needed against Millwall to reach the play-offs, the Tigers again come up trumps right at the death.

Charles-Cook's spectacular strike from distance looked destined to be a worthy winner after Hanlan and Ahearne-Grant had cancelled out the Tigers' lead delivered by Bowen and Ter Horst, but there was no surrender from City. A right-wing cross exposed a tired Charlton defence, allowing Edwards to mark his return from a loan spell at Accrington Stanley in style.

City showed superb resolve to convert all five of their penalties but it was Clackstone, also back from his time at Notts County, who finally settled a fraught evening in the capital.

The Tigers had made their eagerness to progress clear when naming a starting XI including the first team experience of Josh Tymon, Brian Lenihan, Greg Luer, Greg Olley and Bowen, as well as Harvey Rodgers and Max Clark, another two back from loans in League Two.

Cannoned

Charlton, winners of the southern section by 11 clear points, were still able to hold City at bay throughout normal time, thanks largely to the saves of Dimitar Mitov. Charlton's keeper denied Will Annan and Clark, before City came as close as possible in the 83rd minute when Bowen's strike from distance cannoned off the bar.

Charlie Andrew had also been kept busy at the opposite end to twice deny the dangerous Ahearne-Grant and City's keeper would eventually become the spot-kick hero. It was his save right at the start of the shoot-out, denying Charles-Cook, that set up Clackstone to send the Tigers into the final.
