Ansan Greeners U-18 (Under-18) Jung Ju-hyung was named the top scorer at the 2023 GROUND.N K League U-18 Championship.
Before the Ansan Greeners U-18’s home game against Chungbuk Cheongju FC in the 25th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 at Wah~ Stadium on July 7, an award ceremony was held to honor Jeong Ju-hyung, who was the top scorer in the K League Youth Championship. The ceremony was held in the Ansan Greeners media room due to bad weather conditions. CEO Lee Jung-sook attended the ceremony.
Ansan Greeners U-18’s Jung Joo-hyung was responsible for the team’s offense at the tournament and had a stellar performance, leading the team to the round of 16 and becoming the tournament’s top scorer. He is known for his excellent goal sense and his ability to break through with his speed.
It’s unusual for a top scorer in the championship to come from a team that reached the round of 16 and not the winner. Jung took home the award with five goals, four in the group stage and one in the round of 16.
He opened the scoring in the 61st minute against Gimpo in the first round of the group stage, and then added another in the 74th minute to complete his multi-goal performance in the first win. In the second and third rounds of the group stage, he converted free kicks in the 46th and 68th minutes, respectively, giving him a total of four goals in the group stage to help his team advance to the round of 16.
Against Jeonbuk U-18 in the Round of 16, the team took the lead in the 18th minute with a free kick from Jeong Ju-hyung, but Jeonbuk came back to defeat them 1-2 to end the tournament.
Ansan Greeners head coach Kim Gil-sik said, “It’s encouraging to have a top scorer in our youth team. “We plan to pay attention to our youth players and nurture them so that they can grow into players who can represent the region, and we are looking forward to the future,” said Kim Gil-sik, head coach of the Ansan Greeners.온라인카지노
Jung Joo-hyung, who won the top scorer award, said, “It’s a new feeling to win the top scorer award in a big tournament where all the K League Youth Clubs gather. I am grateful to my manager, coach, and teammates for helping me become the top scorer, and I want to become a player who can help the team in the future.”
