Town Youth strengthened their grip on top spot of the MFYL Premier Division South table with a tremendous performance at Bromsgrove on Wednesday evening.
Both sides took time to settle down before Town moved up a gear and took the lead in the 23rd minute with a fine flowing move beginning with Caine Elliott who slipped the ball through to James Pomeroy. He in turn helped it on to Bradley West who crossed for Harry Hartin to fire past the helpless keeper.
Hartin doubled Town’s lead on 37 minutes drilling a free kick into the bottom corner only for Bromsgrove to pull one back three minutes later and then equalise halfway through the second half.
But Town regained the lead with ten minutes to go when Hartin completed his hat trick as he pounced on a rebound off the keeper and Darren Timms’ side then finished with a flourish with Tommy Harrington adding two more as the game headed into added time.
