Three weeks ago Moors' under 19's were sitting rooted to the foot of the National Football Youth League Midlands Premier Division. However, in just three games, Moors Football and Education have turned their season on its head, rising to third in the table.
In a stunning week for the young Moors, it started with a hard-fought three points and their first ever win at this level in the process. A 2-1 victory at Carlisle United kick-started Myles Cooper's side. Myles stated that his side showed character to secure the late, late win and the spirit needed at this level of football to show 'who you are' and 'who you can become'.
Next up for the F&E was the league leaders Rochdale as they travelled to Hyde United FC stadium, and it couldn’t have got any better for our young side as they stunned the early-pace-setters. One of their best performances of the season landed the dream result, as they came from a goal down to win 2-1 and walk away from Hyde Utd with back-to-back victories for the first time this season. An ecstatic Myles praised his side’s mentality and heart shown to dig deep, but also come out with an unbelievable result in such difficult circumstances against a very talented side in Rochdale AFC MP.
After two brilliant results in the space of 48 hours, Myles’ side ended an incredible week on a real high with a scincillating performance that saw them breeze past the challenge of Bolton Wanderers as they clinically put SEVEN (7-3) past the Whites to secure a third win in a row to take them third and Myles continued to heap the praise on his young superstars as the show rolls on.
Moors Football and Education are now next in action in seven days' time as they prepare to travel to the Eastwood Centre to take on Leeds United hoping to continue their impressive revival by making it four unbeaten in the National Football Youth League.
