Young Owls beat Beleaguered Wanderers

Young Owls beat Beleaguered Wanderers

Wednesday Under 18s gained their second win in as many weeks by beating their counterparts from Bolton 2-0 at Middlewood Road.

Wednesday went close twice in the opening blows, first through a Leon Lekaj free kick that glanced the bar and Vadaine Oliver, who was unable to beat the Bolton keeper one on one.

Wednesday restricted Bolton to long range efforts, and duly got the opener they deserved through Somalian Mukhtar Mohammed. A chipped ball forward from Max Wragg was teed up to Mohammed by Ashley Worsfold and the former long distance runner finished coolly from 12 yards.

Bolton had clearly become frustrated by Wednesday and their discipline was on the wane. Arguments and cursing at one another were rife, in stark contrast to the way Wednesday were behaving, no doubt down to the tuition of Sean McAuley.

Wednesday extended their lead in the second half. Captain Nick Wood (younger brother of Richard) flicked a Callum Harrison corner home to secure the win for the Owls.

On reflection this was a good team performance by Wednesday against a poor looking Bolton side (bottom of their respected division.) There were many impressive individual performances too. Full-back Max Wragg again looked composed, strong in the air and dangerous going forward. Nick Wood and Jamie Hadfield looked solid at the back. Callum Harrison, Tom Connelly and Mukhtar Mohammed ran the midfield and makeshift strikers Ashley Worsfold and Vadaine Oliver didn`t look out of place.

The real test for McAuley`s youngsters comes next week though, against Manchester United. Kick off is 11 at Middlewood.
