United fielded a mix of under-16 and under-18 players in their home friendly against Morecambe on Tuesday afternoon and goals from Charters and Kerr were enough to give the home side the victory following a slow start.
The young Blues were a goal down when Taylor Charters expertly guided a free kick into the back of the net and Keighran Kerr completed the turnaround when he slotted home following some good play.
“It was good to see us play some decent stuff again,” youth boss Darren Edmondson said. “We went behind but we didn’t let it affect us too much.
“The game was played on a big pitch and that allowed them to move the ball around. Some of the under-16 lads were involved and it was a great experience for them. They did very well.
“With the younger boys being off school we’ve been able to work on shape with them involved and, as a team, that was implemented by every player. That’s obviously very good to see.
“It’s another game won and that does no harm for confidence, particularly with a game against a very good Middlesbrough team coming up at the weekend.
“The signs are good at the moment but it’s still pre-season and we still have work to do.”
