YOUTH: Preston 1 - 0 United

Result from the Saturday morning away game

26 March 2022

It was first hosting second in Lancashire on Saturday morning with Preston in the driving seat at the head of the table.

And they delivered a real sucker punch at the end of a close contest when they netted with almost the last kick of the game to tighten their grip on top spot.

"The lads were absolutely fantastic, I can't praise them enough," youth boss Mark Birch said. "I'm gutted for them that they lost in the way they did because they gave it absolutely everything.

"They scored from a free kick, and it was the last kick of the game, and that's a horrible way to lose when you've worked so hard.

"Max Kilsby and Jack Ellis were fantastic throughout, and the under-16s who came in were excellent.

"Credit to Preston and to our lads for the way both teams approached the game."
