Barnsley Under 18s 6
Leicester City U18s 5 (Maris 5, Smith 8, Alexander-Salmon 12, Abbott 16, Shillito 19, 85) minute to make it 6-5. But the drama didn’t stop there, a penalty was awarded to the Foxes deep in stoppage time only for Elliot Chadderton to deny City a leveller.th The hosts pulled back the score to five-all before Macauley Shillito finished neatly in the 85
“The thing we’ve got to remember is that we’re a young side, seven first-years started and finished the game with three of them recently just turning 16.”
“We were five up in 30 minutes and we were fantastic,” Hecky said. “Everything me and Chris had worked on in the week they took on board. All the goals came from positive moves.
Reds Academy Coach Paul Heckingbottom was delighted with his side’s spirit to regain the lead at Leicester in an epic 6-5 win for his Under 18s side.
