Young Magpies overcome Pools for first win...
Notts County youth team picked up their first three points of the season on Saturday with a 3-1 win over Hartlepool United.
The Magpies switched from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 for the fixture and the players settled well.
James Randall got Notts off to a fantastic start with an eighth minute finish from the edge of the box.
15 minutes later, Malachi Lavelle-Moore doubled County’s lead from the penalty spot, after a surging run from midfield by Kyle Dixon had drawn a foul.
Lavelle-Moore added his second after the interval, when he latched onto a cross to place home.
United did manage to grab a late consolation but youth team manager Brett Adams had every reason to be proud of his side.
He told the official site: “It was really good and a very impressive team performance by the lads.
“I can’t fault any one of them, there was great effort and desire from start to finish.
“We had the presentation of how we wanted them to play on the Friday and everyone did their jobs.
“They adapted very well and the lads were disciplined from start to finish, they didn’t veer away from what we planned and we defended well.
“We took our chances and I’m buzzing for the lads, it’s nothing they don’t deserve.”
Adams wants his team to build on the result, following a tough opening to the campaign.
“We’ve played some great football this year but we’ve been defeated by a goal or two in a lot of the matches.
“Hopefully now we can create some momentum and kick on now.
“We want some good cup runs and to continue picking up points.”
