Baggott heads Young Blues to victory over Owls
Town U18s kicked off their season with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday this morning.
Elkan Baggott found the net as Adem Atay’s side secured all three points at Playford Road.
Chances were few and far between in the first half but Teddy Baker went close with a free-kick that was well saved in the 20th minute.
Level at half-time, Blues started the second half brightly and went close when Liam Gibbs picked out Matt Healy, but his shot clipped the crossbar.
Blues did find what proved to be the winner in the 84th minute, though, as Baggott headed in at the back post from Healy’s free-kick.
Town: Alley, Ruffles, Armin (Alexander 77), Baker (Curtis 64), Kagonbolo, Baggott, Healy, Cutbush, Reed (Bareck 64), Gibbs, Z Brown. Subs not used: Oppong, Bort.
