Pre-Season Friendly - Friday 11th September - Handsworth U21 vs WTFC U19
The Under 19s were given another real test as they travelled to Oliver's Mount to face Handsworth U21s.
The visitors stood strong throughout much of the match and took the lead on 20 minutes when poor distribution from the Handsworth keeper allowed Jack Wood to advance on the keeper, take it past him and put the ball in.
Charlie Gill almost made it two from a free kick just before half time, but for the keeper who redeemed himself with a fine save.
A low point of the half was the injury sustained by Alex Stacey, which saw the striker go to hospital is a suspected broken ankle.
In the second half Handsworth found another gear and with around 25 minutes remaining found the back of the net to equalise with a curling shot which beat Josh Thornton.
On 78 minutes Handsworth went ahead and stretched their lead to 3-1 four minutes later.
Wood got one back on 86 minutes with a thumping shot from 20 yards as the U19s refused to give up on the game, however the hopes of a comeback were short lived as Handsworth managed to score a fourth deep into added time.
Match Result: Handsworth FC U21 4, WTFC U19 2.
