Boyle free-kick sends youngsters top
Huddersfield Town’s Under-18 side went top of the Professional Development League 2 North thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 home victory over Birmingham City at PPG Canalside on Saturday morning.
Scottish striker Liam Coogans gave the young Terriers an early lead in wet conditions at the training ground, but Birmingham showed why they were top of the division coming into the game and fought back strongly, levelling midway through the second half.
Town were pinned back for periods of the game, but grabbed all three points late in the second-half thanks to a superbly taken free-kick from midfielder Jack Boyle (pictured above).
Town’s team (4-2-3-1):
Clarke Bogard; Brad Carroll (c), Fraser Horsfall, Jacob Hanson, Nathaniel Pells; Regan Booty, Jamie Spencer; Jack Boyle, Ronan Coughlan (Danny Kane, 65), Liam Coogans (Adam Porritt, 65); Rekeil Pyke
Owen Brooke, Sam Warde, Dylan Cogill
