An excellent second-half performance enabled HUCKNALL WARRIORS UNDER-13S to come from behind and win a place in the quarter-finals of the Notts FA Saturday Youth Shield.

Visiting Bilsthorpe Youth, Warriors trailed 1-0 at the interval, despite dominating possession and htting a post through Lewis Radford. But they roared back to win 4-1 thanks to two goals from Jack Bradley and one apiece from Joe Gilland and Curtis Rigley.

Gillan brought them deservedly level, cutting in from the right to shoot over the ‘keeper and then Bradley bagged his brace, outpacing the defence from the halfway-line for a fantastic solo goal and converting a fine pass by Gillan.
