Liverpool U18 coach Marc Bridge-Wilkinson was pleased with his players for their 10-3 defeat of Leeds.

Oakley Cannonier grabbed four goals in the U18s Premier League North victory at the Academy, with Bobby Clark (two), Luke Chambers, Lee Jonas, Mateusz Musialowski and Calum Scanlon also on the scoresheet for Bridge-Wilkinson's side.

The coach told the club's website: “To score 10 goals is obviously a fantastic achievement we're really pleased with. But to concede the three goals that we did, that's a bit of a disappointment if I'm being honest. We're really pleased but we know we can still be better.

“There were some really good performances all around. I think obviously Oakley will catch the eye with four goals, Bobby with his assists and two goals as well and Isaac [Mabaya]. We played a little bit different today to how we have been and the boys adapted really well. I thought that obviously came across.

“Some of the defending wasn't great but my job is to judge these players on their potential – it's not on today's performance. It's about where we think they can get to, where they hope to get to. So I've got to be honest and I've got to give them feedback that's relative to them individually.

“There were certainly moments defensively where we were a little bit loose and that cost us. When we create the amount of chances that we've had, you've got to think that we'd be taking a few more because some of the chances were so good.

“We're here, we want to get better, we know we can get better and we've obviously got to be pleased with the result in the end."
