U18s: Hull City 3-6 Bolton Wanderers

Wanderers’ youngsters bounced back to winning ways with a 6-3 win away at their Hull City counterparts on Saturday.

Straight from the off, Nicky Spooner’s side were on top and had an opportunity to score within the opening 30 seconds of the clash, only to be thwarted.

They continued to attack but with 15 minutes on the clock, the Whites proceeded to concede from a corner.

Looking for a quick-fire leveller, the Trotters were undone courtesy of some poor defending as the home side doubled their advantage.

Despite falling further behind, Bolton continued to press and some good link-up play by Luca Connell and Matty Fearnley allowed the former to score from distance and reduce the arrears.

And an equaliser arrived just five minutes later as Ted Moulden headed home a Luca Navarro corner, although Hull did retake the lead courtesy of a controversial penalty on the stroke of half time.

Wanderers weren’t lying down though, and after the restart, Moulden notched his second of the game with his left-footed shot from distance beating the keeper low to his right.

Buoyed by their leveller, Spooner’s youngsters rallied and proceeded to take the lead through Max Broughton who turned the ball home inside the six yard box before Navarro and Brown added a fifth and sixth respectively to ensure that the points were Wanderers’ come the final whistle.
