OUR Youth team were back in league action on Friday and suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat at Burton Albion.
The EFL Youth Alliance fixture was played on the Paul Ince pitch at England's St George's complex.
Neil Woods' side were one-nil down and the break and were two down soon after the start of the second half. But Brandon Buckley pulled one back for the Mariners, it was game on and Town could have got something out of the game. Jamie Goddard and a couple of chances to pull Town level and rattled the Burton crossbar .
Coach Neil Woods said: We hit the bar with Jamie and had a few chance in the second half. We could have nicked a result with a little bit of luck.
"Our first half performance was very poor, our second half performance was full of energy and endeavour."
Neil's charges host Notts County at Cheapside in an EFL Youth Alliance fixture this Saturday (11am).
