Syndicate Trust Youth Trophy – 26/04/2018
Bolton County 4 Fleetwood 3 (A.E.T.)
The first half was a cagey affair, both teams experianced periods of dominance, with the half finishing with a blank scoreline.
County made a strong start to the second half and took the lead when FREDDY STEVENS headed the ball into the roof of the net following a corner. The Assassins doubled their lead from the penalty spot, which was converted by TOM JACKSON.
Fleetwood halfed the deficit with a fine strike from Luca Bradley, but Bolton County regained thier two goal advantage when LEWIS STEVENS fired home.
However a deflection split the County defence and Jack Arliss raced through to score (game on). With nothing to lose, Fleetwood piled on the pressure and following a goal mouth scamble, Adam Thornton manged to force the ball home and take the game into extra time.
As the game progressed into the last minute of extra time, Bolton County were awarded a free-kick on the edge of the Fleetwood box, a fine strike was well saved by the Fleetwood keeper but LIAM HULME was first to the rebound and smashed the ball high into the Fleetwood net. This time County managed to defend the lead until the final whistle and secure the trophy.
The game was a credit to both teams and kept a very substantial crowd entertained throughout the 120 minutes of football.
