Academy’s pre-season tour of Scotland – day four

Day four saw our young Spireites spend their second full training base day at Stirling University, ahead of a double header evening fixture at the Falkirk Stadium against Scottish League 1 side Falkirk FC.

Our U19s played their third fixture of the tour when they faced Stirling Albion at the training base.

Featured Game:

Falkirk FC  1 – 3 Chesterfield FC U18s

Venue: Falkirk Stadium

After the game in Edinburgh against Hibernian, our U18s produced a superb performance at the Falkirk Stadium.

After a strong start from the young Spireites, it was Nathan Moss who opened the scoring on 20 minutes with a well executed free-kick.

Falkirk were awarded a penalty shortly before the break, which was converted to put the sides level going into the break.

The second half produced some of the most entertaining football of the tour, as both sides went head to head in search of the win.

Hooper (78) finally put the young Spireites into the lead after anticipating a pass outside the box to place the ball into the bottom corner.

Target man Torres sealed the win on 82 minutes after breaking through to finish in style and make it three in three for the tour.

An excellent all round performance from the side, ahead of tonight’s U19 fixture against Scottish U20s league champions Dunipace FC.
