Latics B were defeated 1-0 by a strong Barrow side this afternoon.
A trialist gave Barrow the lead, as a corner came in from the left and after a scramble in the box, he tapped home from close range.
The young Latics side looked sharp throughout, Harry Vaughan came closest to equalising, his header from close range was smartly saved by Farman.
B team manager, Francis Jeffers, was pleased with his side's workout and the youngsters that played.
“It was a good workout overall, we were against a good squad who are doing really well in League Two, so overall very pleasing.
I was impressed with the youngsters, Aaron Atkinson in particular, he’s one who trains with us quite regular. He’s a great young footballer who will be quite exciting for us.”
Will Sutton played 75 minutes in his first game back after a lengthy spell out, and Francis was happy to see him back playing.
“Will was injured when I came to club, he comes with a good reputation, so it was good to see him back out there.
“His injury is behind him now, it’s not nice to see young players out for long periods but he’s back now which is great, and he’s got to build on that.”
Latics B: Trialist A, Kilner, Okagbue, Sutton (Cookson, 70), Threlkeld (Windass, 15), Stobbs, Couto, Vaughan, Atkinson, Luamba, Trialist B (Trialist C).
