Two goals from Dylan Hand and one from striker Levi Amantchi gave the youth team a 3-2 victory over Oldham Athletic at St George’s Park Sheffield Graves on Saturday.
The result was a third straight EFL Youth Alliance North East win for Miguel Llera’s side and a fourth consecutive triumph in all competitions.
Oldham took a 1-0 lead into the interval, but Hand equalised with a free kick in the second half. The Latics then regained their one-goal advantage.
Substitute Amantchi levelled matters in the 72nd minute, holding off a defender before firing past the goalkeeper.
Hand then grabbed the winning goal and his second of the game, with a diving header 12 minutes from time.
