Richard Walker's side brush aside local rivals...
STOKE CITY U18s returned to winning ways at the weekend as they coolly dispatched FA Youth Cup semi-finalists West Bromwich Albion.
The Potters claimed a 4-2 victory over the Baggies but the margin of victory could quite easily have been far greater at Clayton Wood.
The victory means that the side remain in sixth position in the U18 Premier League North with one game left to play against bottom of the table Sunderland.
Adam Porter and Patrick Jarrett had put City into a comfortable 2-0 lead on Saturday before a Finley Thorndike penalty on the stroke of half time halved the deficit.
Richard Walker’s came out firing in the second half and soon reaffirmed their stranglehold on the game as Mohamed Sankoh added a third and Porter scored another to make it four.
Tom Fellow did net late on for the visitors but the result was never really in doubt, leaving the Potters to comfortably see out the match and collect all three points.
Stoke City: Cooper, Corrigan, Macari, Akandji (Tusevo 74), Forrester (Nash 45), Jarrett, Porter, Jones (Sparrow 88), Malone, Varian, Sankoh. Unused: Parry, Doucoure.
