Ebbsfleet United bow out of the FA Youth Cup at the First Round stage as Northampton triumph at Stonebridge Road.
FLEET YOUTH 0-3 NORTHAMPTON TOWN
Ebbsfleet United’s young stars missed out on a home Second Round tie with either Yeovil Town or Tiverton Town after going down 3-0 to a useful Northampton Town side. The Cobblers, with a reputation for having a very useful youth academy, gained the upper hand after Joe Benjamin netted in the first half.
The Fleet tried to gain a foothold in the second half but the League club’s youngsters added to their tally with Shaun Goodall and Alex Dyer finding the net.
It was nevertheless a valiant try and decent run in the competition by the Youth side who were watched by 181 fans tonight.
