AFC Telford 0 Blues Under-21s 3

Posted: Tue 02 Aug 2016

Blues Under-21s put in their most impressive pre-season performance to date as they comfortably swept past AFC Telford at the weekend.

Superb first-half goals from Wes McDonald and Ronan Hale set Blues on their way against their National League North opponents, before Alex Jones sealed the victory with a third goal in the second-half. 

McDonald netted the opener after 12 minutes after he cut inside from the left and curled the ball into the top corner from just inside the area. Hale's finish was even better as he volleyed home Blues' second minutes later from the other side of the penalty box.

Jones then made it 3-0 when he poked the ball home from a corner just after the hour-mark.

Development Squad Coach Richard Beale (pictured) felt it all came together for his side on the day.

"It was a comprehensive win for us and really pleasing," said Beale.

"The first two goals from Ronan and Wes were excellent, but the team as a whole worked really hard.

"Telford are a decent side who were playing their last pre-season game before the start of the season. and so put out their full team.

"But we outworked and out fought them and the spirit was really good and we demonstrated real physicality, along with a fair bit of quality."
