YOUNG Brewers striker Tom Hewlett has praised the side’s togetherness as the Under-18s ended a run of poor results with victory over Notts County on Friday afternoon.
The forward scored twice as Albion secured a Youth Alliance win over Notts on Friday.
Hewlett said: “It’s a good result. We’ve been working week in week out for it and we fully deserve it. As a team, we grafted for each other and we all worked well together.”
Academy Lead Professional Development Phase Coach Sam Rose praised the efforts of the group. He said: “We have played well in recent weeks, although haven’t done enough to win games, but we deserved to win today. Notts County are a good side and it’s fair to say they would have had one eye on their FA Youth Cup tie on Monday, but we made it difficult for them and played well.”
The Young Brewers will be hoping to build on this performance on Wednesday night when they take on Grimsby Town at Alfreton.
Rose said: “To be able to again play in a stadium under lights will be a great experience for the players. Hopefully we will see a few people there and again perform to the levels we know we can.”
