Bootle 9 Witton Albion U21's 0.
Witton's Under 21's are still seeking their first point of the campaign after they were overwhelmed by a powerful Bootle side on Merseyside on Sunday afternoon.
They had reason to be optimistic following an excellent and spirited performance in their opening fixture against Southport but, Bootle proved too strong and ran riot against a shell-shocked Albion netting nine without reply.
The game was over by half time as the Merseyside club stormed into a seven-goal lead as Witton had no answer to their opponents. Two further goals followed in the second half but it was already out of reach.
Bootle's goalscorers were Peter Silcock who notched a hat trick, Johnny Foy bagged a brace, Jack Copeland, Mark Doran, Jack Holden & an un-named player completed the rout.
