Report: Oldham Athletic U18s 7-1 Iron U18s

14 November 2020

The Iron's Under-18 side were defeat by Oldham Athletic in the Youth Alliance Cup on Saturday, which saw them eliminated from the competition.

The side, however, still have a 100% record in the Youth Alliance League, which will now be their sole focus between now and the end of the season.

The scoreline doesn't tell the full story though, with over half the squad wiped out of action due to COVID-19 protocols. One second year scholar is currently absent having tested positive with the virus. As a result, a further five players are self-isolating, including four further second-year scholars.

All the best to Oldham, who progress to the next stage of the competition after also beating Lincoln City in the group stages to top the table.
