Town Youth 8 Cheltenham Town 1

Town Youth began their defence of the MFYL Leasgue Cup in sensational fashion as they overwhelmed the visiting Robins with an eight goal  blitz .

Sam Sayer headed Town into a sixth minute lead followed by leading scorer Dylan Parker adding two more inside the opening twenty minutes.  Cheltenham pulled one back before half  time, but James Pomeroy made it 4-1 on the hour mark and Parker completed his hat-trick with his 18th goal of the season  two minutes later.

The Robins’ already miserable  evening then got even worse when they had a player sent off  and soon after  Pomeroy scored his second and Town’s sixth.

And the rout was completed with two late strikes from George Dawson and Jordan White.

Youth Team Aim For More Cup Success
