Newport U18s 0 Argyle U18s 4

7 October 2013

ARGYLE'S youngsters maintained their unbeaten run in the Football League Youth Alliance League Cup as this victory in Wales made it seven points from their three Group Two games.

The young Pilgrims were helped by taking a fifth minute lead when Solomon Wheatley, pictured, ended a solo run by cutting inside and firing past home goalkeeper Connor Christy.

Wheatley struck again, 20 minutes later, after racing clear of the home defence to hit a rising drive past the onrushing Christy and in to the roof of the net from 15 yards.

The visitors were looking comfortable despite losing River Allen to injury on 53 minutes but that did not disrupt them too much and they found themselves three goals to the good on 61 minutes.

Josh Hutchinson closed down a defender and worried Christy enough to force the home custodian to spill the ball, leaving the Argyle winger to roll the ball in to an empty net.

With the game all but won, Academy Manager Kevin Hodges took the opportunity to bring on schoolboy Jack Calver for midfielder Ryan Lane.

The scoring was completed, 15 minutes from time, when a ball down the right channel found Ethan Stark showing good control before lifting the ball over Christy from 25 yards.

Argyle: Andrew Hannah, Will Sargent, Callum Hall, River Allen (Keiran Asumadu-Sakyi 53), Aaron Bentley, Ben Purrington, Jake Miller, Ryan Lane (Jack Calver 63), Solomon Wheatley, Ethan Stark, Joshua Hutchinson (Louis Rooney 75).
