Northamptonshire FA’s Under-18 Representative Squad started their Midland Counties Youth Football League campaign on a positive note on Sunday 7 October, with a fine 4-0 win over their Bedfordshire rivals.
The game started very evenly, with both sides creating chances early on. However, Northants broke the deadlock with a well-taken goal and went into half-time holding a 1-0 lead.
The second half saw much of the same, and the Northants ‘keeper, Lewis North Row, produced an excellent save which would have seen the sides level. This seemed to inspire Northants, who then went on to score three more to run out 4-0 victors.
All in all, it was a good, well-contested game and a great advert for county football.
Northants FA would like to congratulate both teams and thank Whitworths FC for the use of their pitch and their warm welcome.
