EFL Youth Alliance action

14 December 2019

Northampton Town's youth team welcomed Leyton Orient to Moulton College on Saturday in the EFL Youth Alliance.

Ethan Johnston (pictured) netted a hat-trick in an 8-2 win for the Cobblers with Caleb Chukwuemeka (2), Michael Harding, Ewan Clarke and Haydn Price from the penalty spot also on target.

"I'd like to thank Leyton Orient for agreeing to reverse the fixture," said under 18s coach Jon Brady.

"The game was meant to be at Orient but the pitch there was waterlogged. Credit to them they wanted to play the game and agreed to play at Moulton so we thank them for that."

Turning to the game itself Brady added: "It was a very positive performance from the boys.

"We were clinical in our finishing, the boys looked sharp and we moved the ball around well."
