Town Youth returned to action on Wednesday evening and maintained their record of scoring in every game this season with a hard earned draw away at Lye.
It was a depleted Town line-up with nine regulars missing due to injuries and school cup commitments but they were well worth their point against a more experienced and streetwise Lye side with 15 year old Callum O’Leary putting in a Man of the Match performance in central midfield on his debut at this level.
Town edged the first half with O’Leary, Ramar Bell, Ben Whitmarsh and Kier Mallen all going close to scoring, but half time was reached with the game still goal-less.
Mallen fired Town ahead in the second half after another debutant Talbot had set up the chance, but Lye equalised from a corner 15 minutes from time.
The draw keeps Town in third spot in the table, and their next fixture is against old rivals Stourbridge at the DCS next Thursday (April 6th).
