Young guns defeat Chesterfield

19 September 2013

Hawkins (2), Flint and Fletcher on the score-sheet in a comfortable 4-1 success.

Our youngsters moved joint-top of the Football Conference Youth Alliance (Midland Division) with a superb 4-1 victory over Chesterfield Blues last night.

In what was a dominant display, striker Joe Flint opened the scoring with a spot-kick, awarded after Dan Fletcher was fouled inside the area

Blues shot-stopper James Fogg was sent-off his part in the incident, which gave our youngsters the incentive to attack even more.

The lively Fletcher doubled our advantage on the hour-mark, when strike-partner Flint unselfishly laid a simple pass into his path.

With a quarter-of-an-hour remaining, playmaker Jack Hawkins sealed the victory, when he converted Liam Marsden’s far-post cross.

Hawkins struck again in the final five minutes, as he latched onto a near-post delivery, this time from substitute Kasey Hodge.

Joe Coxon netted a consolation in stoppage-time for the visitors, but our youngsters were undoubtedly worthy winners.

Team: Fell, Marsden, Gregory, Birch, Coupe, Hawkins, J.Thomas (c), M.Jones, Lamb (Hodge), Fletcher (Thompson), Flint.
