Project 21: Silkmen Youngsters Secure Convincing Victory Over Stockport

16 August 2018

Macclesfield Town Under 18s fought back from being two goals down, to register a convincing 5 - 2 friendly win against Stockport County at the Moss Rose this evening.

The game began at a frantic pace, with both sides looking to stamp their authority on the game in the opening exchanges.

Sam Jordan and Freddie Sass both had opportunities to give Macc the lead, before Connor Eaves put the visitors in front just after the half hour mark.

Eleven minutes later, Eaves doubled County's advantage with a thirty yard screamer which nestled into the top corner of Ben Parkinson's net.

This galvanised Jim Hall's side as they defiantly looked to strike back before the interval and that was exactly what they did on 44 minutes, as Diallo raced into the box before confidently firing home.

Most sides would have settled for this prior to the half-time whistle, yet Macc restored parity a minute later when a corner from the left broke to Jordan and he rifled home from close range.

The second half began with Macc dominating the play once more and they took the lead on 49 minutes when a defensive mixup in the County ranks was seized on by Sass who rolled the ball home.

Macc continued to lay siege to the County goal and extended their lead on the hour mark when Mohammed's blistering run ended with him firing across the face of goal and into the far corner of the net.

The hosts were playing some glorious football by this point and could well have extended their lead on numerous occasions before the fifth goal was secured a minute from time.

Superb work down the left gave Dan Dolling an easy finish from ten yards out and he emphatically completed the rout by blasting the ball home.

After the game, we spoke to Sam Jordan and Manager Jim Hall -

Macclesfield Town Under 18s Starting XI: Parkinson, Madzira, Nolan, Osman, Midgeley, Diallo, Mohammed, Mohammed, Sass, Jordan, Box.
