YOUTH: Fleetwood 1 - 0 United

Result from the Youth Alliance Cup game

5 October 2019

United's second Youth Alliance Cup group fixture was an away trip to Fleetwood with both sides looking to take the points to help with the battle for a place in the first round proper.

It was a late goal for the Cod Army which proved to be enough to settle the tie as the sides played out a fantastic game in excellent conditions.

Youth boss Eric Kinder said: "I have to say, this was a superb advert for Youth Alliance football.

"Both teams played some excellent stuff and anyone who came along to watch it will have left feeling that they'd seen a very entertaining encounter.

"We created some very good chances but we're going through a spell where we just can't put them away at the moment.

"With this being a round-robin format, and with two games left to play, it probably means that we can't qualify for the knock-out stages. 

"That aside, there were a lot of good things on show from our lads. If they take this level of performance into the league games they'll be fine."

More details to follow.
