ACADEMY | Second Half Blitz Shatters Glassboys

15th February 2019 by Jamie Griffiths - Academy

The Academy Under 18 side beat Stourbridge 5-1 in last night’s Midland Floodlit Youth League tie at Old School Lane.

Dan Chance’s side kept up their unbeaten league run in 2019 with a fine second half display after the visitors threatened to over-run them during the opening half. The Bulls took the lead after ten minutes through Chris Hilton before a low drive from the edge of the box levelled scores. 

The Glassboys then began to dominate, having a strong penalty call denied before a trio of attacking moves were flagged offside in quick succession. Goalkeeper Dan Keane and his defence, with Connor Davies-Austin again putting in a strong performance, were grateful to go in at the break still 1-1.

While Stourbridge started strongly in the second half, the introduction of  Luke Firkin and Jack Marston swung the game in the home side’s favour. Marston’s excellent through ball nearly set up a goal. However, a minute later the goal did come when Ben Hopkins’ cross was headed home by Firkin on the hour mark.

Stourbridge seemed to then go to pieces, with the third coming nine minutes later with sub Oliver Purdy setting up Marston to coolly slot home with the defence in disarray, and it was four soon after as Marston turned provider for Firkin to grab his second.

Matt McLeod found the net with an excellent header with five minutes to go to cap a fine second half performance, with Head Coach Dan Chance pleased with the clinical nature of his side.

Team – Keane, Hopkins, Wood, Whitlock, Edwards, Davies-Austin, Evans, McLeod, Hilton, Goodfellow, Yalland

Subs – Purdy, Mellars, Marston, Pemberton, Firkin

The Under 18 side are back in action next Thursday (Feb 21st, 7.30pm) when they travel to Bromsgrove Sporting’s Victoria Ground (B61 0DR), before they then face Pegasus Juniors at Old School Lane in the semi-final of the Herefordshire FA Giantkillers Cup on Thursday February 28th.
