JAKE Scrimshaw’s double propelled Cherries to victory over 10-man Aston Villa and into the quarter-finals of the FA Youth Cup for only the second time.

Cherries will entertain two-time winners Manchester City in the last eight having triumphed 2-0 against category one side Villa at Vitality Stadium.

Scrimshaw opened the scoring when he expertly nodded home Harvey Bertrand’s 53rd-minute cross.

And the frontman increased to 37 his personal tally for the season when he converted from the edge of the box in stoppage time.

Villa had played virtually the entire game with 10 men after Jacob Ramsey was dismissed for a poor challenge on Christian Saydee.

Discussing the win, boss Alan Connell told the club website: “It feels great. It was a difficult game against high-quality opposition but our boys delivered as I had believed they would.

“I’m delighted to go through but also delighted with how we played at times. I thought we played some good stuff.

“I’m very proud of every one of them – all the boys and all the staff.

“All the work that has gone in behind the scenes gave us a feel-good factor in the changing room.”
