Report: Young Harriers win at Coleshill

Harriers win again in the FA Youth Cup…

Harriers continued their adventure into the FA Youth Cup on Monday evening with a 3-0 victory over Coleshill Town.

The match at Pack Meadow began slowly, taking 18 minutes for the first chance to present itself and it fell to the home side – Kye Shewell with an effort from range, which went over Ewan Mountjoy’s crossbar.

Seven minutes later Harriers would have a chance following a cross from the right by Kian Kang which fell for Reiss Taylor-Randle, who diverted wide.

Two minutes later Mountjoy would be called into action to pull of a crucial save. Jayden Ward was played through one-v-one, but the Harriers stopper was equal to it.

The half would end goalless, and in fairness, it was one that Harriers had the majority of possession and chances in, and  they got their rewards 13 minutes after the restart.

James Dutton drifted in from the left and struck a fine effort with his right from the edge of the area, which flew into the top right corner.

Just three minutes later, Harriers would double their lead through Harrison Yates who brought the ball forward from the half way line before rifling a shot from 30 yards, which the ‘keeper got a touch to, but couldn’t prevent the ball from going into the net.

The third would arrive within four minutes – Taylor Randle playing the ball through to Jaiden White who raced on to meet it, getting there ahead of the ‘keeper and knocking it around him before calmly finishing past a back-tracking defender who had positioned himself on the goal line.
