Liverpool U21s Win Easily in Academy Fundraiser

3 May 2016

Chesterfield were outclassed by their esteemed opponents from Liverpool as they were beaten 5-0 in front of an enthusiastic crowd at the Proact.

Hopes of a good home start were quickly kicked into touch when Liverpool striker Brooks Lennon struck fiercely from the edge of the box that rifled past Spireites 'keeper James Montgomery.

After Callum Greaves' burst couldn't pick out a Spirietes man, Ryan Virtue was unable to control a volley at the other end, sending an effort well over the bar.

Joao Carlos Texeira ploughed a 20-yard shot narrowly wide while the Spireites posed a rare threat midway through the half when Laurence Maguire and Derek Daly combined to feed in George Milner, but the striker's fancy cross was cleared.

Half an hour in and the Liverpool led doubled, Ryan Kent skipped to the byline and his low cutback bobbled to Lennon who mishit a low shot past the 'keeper from eight yards.

The lead was up to three before the break when Kent, dangerous throughout, slotted through men from close range.

The Spireites had a late chance in the half to mark the scoreboard when Liverpool 'keeper Adam Bogdan came out to clear, only kicked to Davis Keillor Dunn, but the midfielder couldn't find the space to fire it back goalwards.

The hosts made changes at the break and one of them, Joe Rowley, had a huge chance to pull a goal back for the hosts, but he could only fire over from close in after Jake Hudson's low ball found him at the back post.

With 20 minutes to go Spireites created another big chance to score when Jake Beesley sped away down the right, cut inside to draw the 'keeper out before pulling back to Curtis Morrison, but the striker could only slice wide with the goal gaping.

Two quick-fire Liverpool goals pulled the visitors further scores clear when first Texeira finished neatly and then substitute Jerome Sinclair drove low and past Montgomery as the isitors ran-out easy winners.
