Witton Youth suffer heavy opening day defeat.
By Derek Buckley
Six second half goals spoil encouraging start.
Full Time Score from Broadhurst Park:
North West Youth Alliance:
FC United of Manchester 7 Witton Albion Youth 1.
Witton's Youth team got off to the perfect start in their opening North West Youth Alliance fixture at Broadhurst Park on Sunday afternoon when in-form striker Kyle Phipps gave them an early lead. FC United equalised on 35 minutes and the teams went in level at half time.
Nobody could've envisaged what was to follow in the second period, as the home side took complete control and ran in a further six goals in a fifteen minute spell, to take the game well out of Witton's reach.
Despite the final scoreline, a special mention should be given to Luke Walton who worked tirelessly for the team and never gave up.
Witton Albion Youth:
Lee Wilkinson; Ben Clark, Luke Walton, Sam McLaughlin, Gerrard Crane; Joe Stubbs, Sam Cryer, Joe Booth, Alex Murphy, Zac Cooke; Kyle Phipps.
Subs: Will Smith, Callum Haves, Luke Draysey & Ethan Boyes (All Used).
