YOUTH TEAM: Spireites Net Mariners Win

23 March 2016

The youth team's winning week continue with a "brilliant" 3-0 win over Grimsby Town on Tuesday night at Inkersall Road.

After the 6-2 hammering of Hartlepool United at the weekend the Mariners were the latest to feel the force of the Spireites in the win at Staveley.

Goals from Jack Brownell, Owen Darwent and Joe Rowley gave the hosts a three-goal lead that away side were never likely to bridge, despite a Grimsby goal in the final 15 minutes.

Academy manager Mark Smith gushed in his praise for the side: "It was a good game and we put in a brilliant performance. The pitch was bobbly after all the recent games on it, so that didn't make things any easier.

"We scored three good goals in a much-changed team with a lot of young players. It's great for next season and the future after that as with several lads away with the reserve side we relied in some really young kids, and they came through for us on the night.

"There were good performances throughout the side, so I ended the game feeling quite proud of them."
