Wigan Athletic Progress in FA Youth Cup

Wigan Athletic Progress in FA Youth Cup

Wigan Athletic Youth Team are through to the 4th round of the FA Youth Cup after they beat Stoke City 3-0 at the DW Stadium.

Goals from Michael Girvan, Ryan Astles and Ryan Watson gave the Latics youngsters a comfortable win and the team gave a solid performance with Sean Myler, who played left midfield having the stand out game.

Girvan opened the scoring for the Latics on six minutes after the Stoke keeper fumbled a free kick which was crossed into the box, the ball dropped at the defenders feet and he poked the ball home.

Latics dominated from here on but it wasn`t until the 51st minute that they increased their lead, Astles pouncing on another mistake by the Stoke keeper after he failed to hold a cross.

Watson wrapped things up in the closing stages smashing home from the edge of the area to give the score line a resounding ring to it.

Goal scorers: Wigan Athletic - Girvan 6, Astles 51 & Watson 86

Latics: Nicholls; Lewis, Willis, Girvan, Astles, Chow, Myler (Lynch, 89), Morris, Bingham (Sheego, 83), Watson (Phillips, 90), Boothmann

Subs: Williams, Waters

Stoke: Parton, Roberts-Nurse, Hall, Clarkson (Dawson, 62), Hedley, Wint, Mitchell, Koroma (Alabi, 61), Agbaje, Richardson (Bossman, 87), Musungu

Subs: Harrison, Galloway
