The Iron's youth team ran out 4-0 winners at Brigg Town on Saturday.

Jack Mawson underlined United's class when he finished well to make it 4-0 on 84 minute after using his pace to break clear of the Brigg defence.  

United continued to dominate the game and it was no surprise when Wootton completed his hat-trick on 80 minutes, rounding the keeper after some neat foot work to slot into the open goal.

On the hour, the Iron made six changes as the players were rotated ensuring that each player played his part.

Ten minutes later, Wootton doubled the score line and his personal tally when he confidently beat the keeper when through on goal.

The second half saw United's juniors totally dominate, going in front immediately from the restart as Wootton slammed his penalty in to the roof of the net to open the scoring.

Brigg were having to work hard to repel the Iron's attacks and the teams went in at the break on level terms.

Burdett used his pace well on 36 minutes and his excellent cross saw Wootton head narrowly over.

The home team almost opened the scoring just after when a free kick on the angle saw Ledger back peddling in the visitors goal but the effort bounced off the top of the cross bar and behind to safety.

Levi Sutton saw his effort tipped round the post minutes later as United stepped up the tempo in the midday sun.

First year goalkeeper Ben Ledger was in action on 20 minutes when he had to be quick off his line and brave to dive at the Brigg striker's feet in the penalty area.

United started well and, on six minutes, Kyle Wootton received the ball in the box and his shot on the turn was pushed round for a corner.

"As always, we will break the game down, analyse it with the players and identify areas where we can improve individually and as a team so that we continue to develop."

"At times we played some really good football both in and out of possession and the boys have worked really hard especially when you consider just how hot it is today.

Afterwards, Academy Manager Tony Daws said: "Both myself and Paul Harsley are delighted with the team performance and the result.
