Darlington 0 Halifax Town 1

Quakers Academy were beaten by Halifax in the League Cup at Blackwell Meadows by a first half goal.

Once again, the lads put in loads of effort and Mitch Glover was outstanding

Halifax had the better of the first 20 minutes and Darlington keeper Aaron Burn made two good saves and Halifax also hit the bar, but Quakers came more into the game towards half time.

Mitch Glover fired a 30 yarder just over the bar as they mounted some good pressure, but Halifax took the lead just on half time.

They caught Quakers flat footed from a swift breakaway, and the full back beat Burn with a right foot shot.

In the second half, Quakers had more possession and played some good football, but they didn't trouble the Halifax keeper enough.

Team:

Quakers: Burn, Gardiner, Lycett, Kaba, Alderson, Stansfield, Glover, Shaw, Lindthep, Dunn (sub Lynas 70), Morrison (sub Nunes 46)

Subs: Cranston, McNab, Buckley
