Youth Team almost upset league leaders
Late goal denies youngsters victory.
Full Time Score from Solar Campus:
North West Youth Alliance:
Tranmere Rovers Youth 3 Witton Albion Youth 3.
Witton's Youth team were denied an excellent away win as Tranmere Rovers scored an 89th minute equaliser for the game to end 3-3.
A first half saw Witton completely dominate and an excellent lob from Joe Booth and a neat side-foot finish from James Rogers saw Witton take a 2-0 lead into the break.
The hosts fought back strongly to peg the score back to 2-2 through a neat finish and a Findlay Hutton headed own goal.
With 10 minutes to go, Right back Jack Walker delivered an excellent free kick for Findlay Hutton to flick on to Centre Back partner George Studzinski who headed against the inside of the post, only for Captain Ronan Eves to steer the lose ball into the corner.
The away side couldn’t quite hang on against the league leaders as the late drama followed, but are on a good run having only been beaten once in 8 games.
