Lewis Leigh On 'Dominant' Performance

19 December 2021

Second year scholar Lewis Leigh felt North End dominated the game as they put four goals past Morecambe.

North End made it four wins in a row as they beat Morecambe 4-1 away from home in the EFL Youth Alliance League.

Speaking to PNE.Com after the win, Leigh said: “I thought the team played really well.

“It was a difficult playing surface, it took us a little while to get into the game going from grass to astroturf. However, after we got into it we dominated the game and got the win.”

Leigh scored North End’s second with an absolute beauty of a free-kick from the edge of the area that went in off the post.

On the goal, he continued: “It was a good hit. I just wanted to get it on target, and I aimed for that left-hand corner and it went in which I’m very thankful for.”

North End have enjoyed a really successful first half to the season in all competitions and the midfielder believes that this North End team can go on to have a successful end to the campaign.

“On a personal note, I'm really enjoying my football right now, I'm taking on a lot from the gaffer, hopefully I will get a chance in the first team soon.

“As a team we’ve had a really good start to the season, we are towards the top of the league so I don’t see why this team can’t end up winning the league.

“We have two tough games coming up next so we will prepare for those and see how we fare.”

Lewis and the U19s are back in action next on January 8th as they travel to Salford in the Youth Alliance League.
