Reserves beat Pools

11 September 2012

Mellor, Sutherland on the mark

Latics' reserves produced an excellent display as they recorded a 2-1 win against a more experienced Hartlepool United side in their Central League fixture at Chapel Road.

David Mellor and Chris Sutherland were the goalscorers.

Mellor broke from midfield to thump home a 25-yard drive to put Latics ahead early in the game.

Pools equalised, but Sutherland conjured the winner after an hour, a brilliant solo effort.

Trialist striker Jose Baxter had an impressive game as he tries to win a contract at Boundary Park.
