HATTERS YOUNGSTERS WIN SEVEN-GOAL THRILLER

1 November 2014

Town Under-18s victorious once again

The Town Under-18s fought back from two goals down to triumph 4-3 against Cambridge United in the Youth Alliance to make it four wins on the spin and seven games unbeaten.


Paul Driver’s side trailed 2-0 inside five minutes before Akene Amadi pulled a goal back on the half-hour.


A two-goal blast in as many minutes from Isaac Galliford – the second from a fine free-kick from the edge of the penalty area – put the Hatters in front for the first time.


And although the U’s levelled the score on 75 minutes, the Town were not to be denied a winner when Tyreeq Bakinson, only on the pitch two minutes, hit the winner in the final minute.


Driver told lutontown.co.uk: “We attacked well but didn’t defend too well, as the 4-3 scoreline suggests. But the boys dug in, especially at 2-0 down because they could have easily given in.


“They kept going and naturally I’m pleased to get another victory.”


Town: King, Maguaraushe, Perry, Musonda, Hawkes, Justin, Galliford, Atkinson, Amadi (sub Tayali 59), Craig (sub Bakinson 87), Allman. Subs not used: McJannett, Snelis, Gooch.
