A first half hat-trick from Jay Bramwell put Alex Smart’s under-18s on the way to a comprehensive 7-2 victory over Bolton County on the Junior Premier League’s opening weekend.
Man-of-the-match Bramwell completed a four-goal haul in the second half, with further goals coming via skipper Harry Scarborough (2) and Daniel Lilley.
Ben Foster’s under-16s secured a 2-2 draw at Oldham Athletic Development Centre through goals from Harry Finnerty and Hayden Turner.
The under-15s were also in action against Oldham Athletic, at the Youth Setup’s 2020/21 home ground – Fulwood Academy in Preston. Thomas Cardwell was the man on target for Lorenzo Perretti’s side.
- *Lorenzo and his coaching team would still like to add a couple of central defenders to their squad – any parents of interested players should contact email@example.com for more details, and watch this space for a special trial date coming up later this month.
The under-14s weren’t so fortunate in their match against Oldham Athletic, as they went down 8-0.
Next week’s update should include news from all six of our youth sides as the BTEC Education Programme season gets underway on Wednesday, ahead of the under-21s opening match in the North West Under-21 Development League on Sunday.
