KICK-OFF | Academy Southport Update

The season has now started for the U17, U18 and U21 sides.

U17

League: North West Youth Alliance – Division 2

The young development side will have to wait a bit longer to play as their away game at Rylands was postponed in the morning due to the wet weather.

Next up for them is a game at Ewen Fields 3G to play Hyde United’s development squad on Friday night.

U18

League: North West Youth Alliance – Premier Division

Following an opening day goal-fest with Chorley last week, drawing 5-5 at Edge Hill. The lads remain unbeaten after overcoming Hyde United at the same venue, 2-1.

Rustam Stepans was once again amongst the goals with Wes Owens getting the other.

The young lads now host Stockport County for their third successive home league game in a fortnight. But before that is a mouthwatering FA Youth Cup trip to Marine. Details below.

U21

League: North West U21 Development League – Premier Division

Playing Witton Albion away, the lads recorded a confident boosting victory after a productive pre-season.

Winning 4-3, Dan Singleton bagged a brace with Luke Welsh and Isaac Jones getting on the scoresheet as well.

Next up is a trip on the hills at Glossop North End in a week’s time.
