U18: Leeds 1-3 Crewe

9 November 2016

Kenny Lunt's side bounced back to winning ways from FA Cup disappointment

Crewe Alexandra Under 18's bounced back from FA Youth Cup disappointment to beat Leeds United 3-1 in league action.

The Alex looked to be heading for an FA Youth Cup exit hangover at Leeds when the hosts took the lead with a powerful near post header from a corner to lead 1-0 at half-time.

But a galvanized Crewe took full control after the break, drawing level at 1-1 through Lewis Reilly's delectable chip inside the box.

An error from the Leeds goalkeeper misjudging a pass-back allowed Luke Walley to race on to the loose ball & tuck home to put Crewe ahead for the first time, before substitute Owen Dale settled the game with a surging run & finish across the goalkeeper.

Crewe: Wardley, Woodcock, Sass-Davies, Wilkinson, Offord, Lundstram, Lynch, Walsh (Dale, 66), Griffiths, Reilly, Walley
