BURLEY 3-4 SALTS U17 HUDDERSFIELD
A gutsy performance from the U17s saw them pull back the game after being 2-0 down at the break.

Burley’s main pitch had not been marked out so the game was played on a much smaller pitch used for U13s. Consequently the midfield was very congested and the lads were unable to play their usual expansive game. Despite conceding twice Will King’s header hit the bar as did a shot from Finlay King so there were some promising signs.

At the half Nat Wilson Fleming dropped deeper to support birthday boy Jack Morrow in midfield and we began to get control of the game. Finlay pulled one back just after the break and then, from a corner, Matthew Padgett’s header was handled on the line but the referee awarded the goal.
Salts then got a bit lax and allowed Burley a soft third but the lads just stepped it up again. Cain Thomas Spencer spotted Alex Clark one on one with his centre back and an accurate kick allowed Alex to finish cooly. With just two minutes to go a Nathan Hirst shot was punched out by their keeper to Luke Kelly on the edge of the box and he smartly beat his man to fire home.

A great workout for the team as we start our League Campaign on Sunday
