A reserve XI put five past Chesterfield in a behind-closed-doors game at Thorp Arch on Monday.
The senior experience in a young United side was provided Lloyd Sam and Billy Paynter, and the former netted our third goal of the game shortly after the hour-mark when he passed two defenders after a short corner.Sam was also the architect for a Nathan Turner striker just after half-time while Will Hatfield was also among the scorers in what was a comfortable win.Reserve team manager Neil Redfearn was full of praise for Hatfield, but was delighted with the overall team performance.Redfearn said: "We were always in control and Monty Gimple and Ross Killock looked strong and assured at the back. Sam Byram got forward to good effect from right back and in midfield Nathan Turner capped off a fine display with a well taken goal."Our wide players were a constant threat, both creating and scoring goals and Will Hatfield married a great work ethic with craft and guile."
