|03.09.2022||Jaden Williams’ hat-trick dominated the 3-1 win at Liverpool’s Kirby training ground, with our Under-18s producing a controlled performance in the League Cup game.
Although Spurs dominated the first half, it was only five minutes before half-time when the deadlock was broken. Max McKnight took a throw-in, which came off a Liverpool defender’s head to Thomas Bloxham, who headed the ball into Williams. Controlling the ball, Jaden turned his man and fired in a shot across the keeper to find the bottom corner of the net. A minute into stoppage time, Spurs made it 2-0 as Bloxham made the most of a loose ball as he fell to the turf, knocking it on to Williams, who controlled with his right foot near the penalty spot, before shooting past the keeper with his left foot.
Jaden wrapped up his hat-trick in the 54th minute, with Bloxham’s corner finding Will Andiyapan unmarked at the far post and his header back into the danger area was knocked in by Williams from the six yard box.
The score-line could have been heavier in Tottenham’s favour had Mikey Moore, Riley Owen and Williams taken further opportunities, but four minutes from the end, Louie Koumas scored a consolation goal for the Reds.
