Youth weekend double header

The FC Youth squad for this season provided manager Chuks Akuneto with the kind of problem any manager wants as two separate squads opened the pre-season preparations.

A squad which contained those from last year still young enough to try again with some new faces took on the Stockport County Youth Team at Manchester College on Saturday and emerged with a 2-1 win. They dominated the first half and could easily have been 5-0 up, although Stockport had a reasonable penalty claim turned down.

The visitors pulled one back early in the second half but were unable to threaten an equaliser.

A squad made up of new faces, nearly all able to give the club two years at this level took on a strong Springhead side, conceeding some years to the Oldham side. Whilst ultimately losing 2-1 as strength and age told Chuks admitted that they had done all he could have asked and more.

The build up continues against Avros at Manchester College on Thursday but Chuks clearly has no intention of letting the league title go without a fight.
