Hatters youngsters follow up last weekend's win with another

The Town Under-18s made it two wins from two in the Youth Alliance with a 3-1 victory away to Peterborough United on Saturday morning.

James Verney directed James Justin's cross home after 10 minutes to give Paul Driver's side the lead.

Posh levelled with a fine effort from the edge of the box on 40 minutes but a minute before half-time Cameron McJannet's free-kick found the top corner to restore the Town's lead.

The Hatters began the second half on fire with Alex Atkinson, Kavan Cotter and Jack Snelus all going close - the latter striking a shot from 40 yards against the crossbar.

But the Town continued to push for a third goal and on 70 minutes they made the game safe when Justin was fouled in the box and Atkinson converted the resultant penalty.

A delighted Driver told "It was an excellent all-round display.

"If you had offered me six points from six and a plus-six goal difference after two games I would have bit your arm off.

"We were better with the ball this week and our defending was too."

Town: Gooch, Bean, McJannet, Musonda, McGhan-George, Justin, Cotter, Atkinson, Snelus (sub Famewo 78), Verney (sub Shamola 82), Murray. Subs not used: Jones, Le Fleur, Mead.

The Hatters youth team are in action at home to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday. kick-off at Ely Way is at 2pm.
