Bedworth United Youth went through to the next round of the FA youth cup after a nail biting game away to Halesowen running out 3-2 victors with a last minute penalty scored by Jack Wells. It wasn’t plain sailing for the young Greenbacks though having to battle back after going behind to a 1st minute goal from a corner. Bedworth battled back with Dylan Sands assisted by Warwick Hurst levelling the score then Chris Jones who led the line well headed the second to send Bedworth in at half time 2-1 to the good. Halesowen equalised in the second half and that’s how the scores remained until the final minutes when Jack Wells kept his nerve from 18 yards to put the Greenbacks through.
Speaking to Lee Hurst after the game he said “Had it not been for both Goalkeepers the score line would have been a lot more with Owen Betteridge in the Bedworth goal pulling off a number of crucial saves. Credit must also go to the Halesowen keeper who was equally as good” Lee went on to say that he was immensely proud of the whole team in the way that they played and would like to wish Halesowen all the best for the coming season and complimented them on their hospitality and producing a playing surface that was perfect for a free flowing game of football.
