MICHAEL Dacosta Gonzalez struck twice as Cherries’ under-18s put their name in the hat for the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup.

Alan Connell’s men sealed a 2-0 win away from home in the third round of the competition at Exeter City on Thursday, to earn their place in Monday’s draw.

Dacosta Gonzalez set the ball rolling for Cherries with a powerful headed effort in the opening period, before striking a second shortly after the break.

Victory reversed the form for Alan Connell’s troops, having fallen at the same stage of the competition against the Grecians exactly 12 months ago.
