U14/15 Academy 4-0 Pro Elite

Harrogate Town’s U14/15 Academy welcomed a strong Pro Elite side to the CNG Stadium on Friday 3rd May.

Town Started very well and created a number of early chances with Nathan Young, Lewis Kettlewell and Danny Wilson all going close.
 
The early pressure paid off for Town when Kettlewell found space on the edge of the area to slip a perfectly weighted pass into the path of Joe Payette, whose first time finish left the keeper no chance.
 
Town would have to wait till early in the second half to get their second with Luke Plant winning the ball from the opposing winger then playing a pass through to Payette who rounded the keeper to get his second. 
 
Pro Elite looked dangerous when they came forward, but brilliant defensive displays from Plant, Tom Flint, Will Sharman and Ben Green limited their chances.
 
Green had a hand in Town’s third goal when he stepped out with the ball and put Young one on one with the keeper, from where he finished smartly into the corner.
 
Payette completed the scoring by grabbing his hat-trick when Wilson beat his man and pulled the ball back, setting up a clever finish into the far corner.
 
4-0 it finished to the young Town side; A great game to watch and one of the best performances of the season.
