Town In Seventh Heaven

Michael McCaffery

Huddersfield Town were in seventh heaven last weekend as their youngsters recorded an amazing 7–4 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Storthes Hall.

For Wolves it must rankle to lose away from home having scored four times, however, a double from winger Michael McCaffery (pictured) alongside strikes from defenders Adam Field, Spencer Harris, midfielder Chris Atkinson, striker James Spencer and an own goal sent them back to the Midlands without even a point.

In a goal crazy match it had looked promising for the visitors when they took a 5th minute lead through Liam McAlinden but that was cancelled out just three minutes later when McCaffery volleyed home from a well delivered free-kick.

Wolves immediately hit back with their second goal of the game in the 12th minute when skipper Nathan Rooney placed an effort in to the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

However, Town levelled things up again when a Ryan Watson corner forced a Wanderers defender to put the ball through his own net.

With half time nearing, it was Town that took a lead that they never looked back from when Adam Field rose to meet a Spencer cross.

Spencer himself extended Town’s lead on the hour mark, latching onto a good through-ball from McCaffery before intelligently lifting the ball over the ‘keeper, before McCaffery made it 5-2 just two minutes later with his second of the game.

Wolves reduced the arrears when Rooney scored from the penalty spot only for central midfielder Chris Atkinson to score Town’s sixth goal on the strike of 76 minutes with a shot from the right side of the area.

First year professional Spencer Harris scored Town’s final goal from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining after substitute Jack Hunt had been hauled down by the goalkeeper, with the Griffith’s adding a consolation for the visitors in added time.
