Under-23s and under-18s kick off 2022
Last night the under-23s kicked off the year with a 1-1 home draw against Birmingham City and this afternoon the under-18s have followed, beaten 2-1 by Manchester City at City’s Academy Stadium.
The under-23s took the lead last night at Leyland through Dara Costelloe four minutes before half time but a late Jacson Coppack goal left us with just one point.
