City 1-3 Stoke: U17s Premier League Cup highlights

Watch the best of the action from City's clash with Stoke at the City Football Academy in the U17s Premier League Cup.

Ben Wilkinson’s side raced out of the traps and scored the opening goal of the game on the 16th minute through Alfie Harrison.

A crossfield ball found Emilio Lawrence in space, he flashed a cross across the six-yard box for Harrison who was there to apply the finish.

City were stung just after the half an hour mark as the visitors scored two goals in a minute to turn the game on its head.


Defender Jake Griffin pulled the scores level, heading home from a corner before captain Nathan Lowe fired in a rebound after George Murray-Jones’ initial save.

Lowe scored his second and Stoke’s third of the game in the second half - making City’s task of progressing through to the quarter finals even more difficult.

Michael Okeke rattled a post later on in the game, but we could not find a way back into it.

The defeat to the Potters sends us out of the Under-17s Premier League Cup.
