YOUTH ALLIANCE | Walsall Win, But Wigan Athletic Maintain their Lead

Following last weekend's set of Football League Youth Alliance (North West) fixtures, there was no change at the top of the table as Walsall, Wigan Athletic, and Bury, who occupy the top three places, all were victorious as the campaign continues.
Following last weekend's set of Football League Youth Alliance (North West) fixtures, there was no change at the top of the table as Walsall, Wigan Athletic, and Bury, who occupy the top three places, all were victorious as the campaign continues.

Neil Woods' Saddlers played host to Fleetwood Town, while league leaders Wigan Athletic and third placed Bury were faced with the bottom two sides, Morecambe and, surprise strugglers, Burnley.

Walsall won their match by three-goals to-nil as Cameron Peters bagged a brace either side of Maz Kouhyar's first-half strike, the victory was the Saddlers' twelfth in twenty-two alliance outings and saw them maintain the gap to leaders Wigan Athletic.

Bury joined the Saddlers in recording a 3-0 victory, while league leaders Wigan Athletic recorded a 5-1 victory against Morecambe, a result that sees the young Shrimps continue their terrible campaign, as they have won just two of their twenty-one games, losing seventeen.

Local rivals Shrewsbury Town defeated sixth placed Blackpool and as a result moved above Tranmere Rovers into fourth place, but are unlikely to enter the race for the title, with Wigan holding a four point and two game advantage over the second placed Saddlers.

Walsall will continue their campaign as they return to action later this week by travelling North to take on Wrexham, the match kicking off at midday on Wednesday.
