Workington Athletic vs Workington AFC Development

Workington Athletic vs Workington AFC Development



Young Reds storm to victory

Reds’ Development Squad utilised their normal Monday night training slot to good effect by playing a hastily arranged friendly against a strong Athletic side at Lakes College.

And Brian Dawson was able to give valuable game time to the entire squad, fielding a different XI in each half.

There was no indication of what was to come after an even opening fifteen minutes, the Young Reds taking a lead thanks to a Matty Foster goal but Athletic restoring parity soon after through Ryan Connelly.

The Development Squad regained their slender advantage before half time with a fine headed goal from Ciaran Booty who met Thomas Houghton’s inch-perfect cross.

They started a period of domination upon the restart, underlined by further goals from Carl Lightfoot, Charlie Johnston and Louis Webster which established a 5-1 lead at one stage.

Brodie Richardson maintained Reds’ four goal advantage when he kept out Matthew Perry’s penalty.

Athletic did make the score-line a little more respectable from their perspective with a late consolation goal when Connelly netted his second. 

Development Squad: Mikey Watson (Brodie Richardson), Aidan Howarth (Ethan Heron), Tom Skinner (Joe Palmer), Kian Dear (Harry Atkinson), Dan Whitehead (Matty Hartley), Luke Ivison (Taylor Hambling), Jack Burns (Jake Scaife), Chad Grisdale (Louis Webster), Ciaran Booty (Charlie Johnston), Matty Foster (Carl Lightfoot), Thomas Houghton (Leon Dmytrowski).
