Town Under-16s produced a very good performance and can count themselves unfortunate not to have taken something from the game.

They fell behind to an outstandingly executed free-kick after which they lost their shape.

In the second half Town came more into the contest, but the physical approach of the hosts left Tipton, Newman and Smith all on the receiving end of heavy challenges!

One challenge too many resulted in a penalty that Gosse tucked away. After good work from Morrish and Bray the lively Newman headed just wide.

A late unfortunate own goal completed the scoring.

Eric Leung, who chased everything throughout was the Town Man of the Match and there were a couple of promising debuts from Toofan Omari and Bradley Jones.
