Alfreton Town U18 4 Ilkeston FC U18 2
Tuesday Dec 20, 2016
Alfreton's Acadamy side hit the top of the Central Conference League with a 4-2 win over Ilkeston Under 18's on Monday evening at the Impact Arena.
Jamie Brough, the Academy manager, fielded a strong side including three over age players from the First Team squad, Liam Hearn,Todd Jordan and Mark Shelton, in order to give them valuable game time.
Full credit must be given to both sides for providing attractive, entertaining football. Liam Hearn showed his true class, by scoring all four of the Red's goals, the first two in particular being quality finishes.
Ilkeston never game up on their passing game and were rewarded with two late goals to give the soreline a more respectable look.
Alfreton Town Under 18 : Josh Stredder, Ramel Miller, Declan White, Owen Ludlow, Sam Jackson, Josh Pearson, Todd Jordan, Ellis Evans, Liam Hearn, Morgan Brough, Mark Shelton

The next Academy game for the Reds is on Saturday January the 7th versus Eastwood Community at the Impact Arena. Kick Off time to be decided.
