Smith ecstatic to play key role in youth victory

The midfielder caught the eye with three assists

Conor Smith revealed his delight at helping his side gain three points in a 3-2 win over near neighbours Morecambe in the Youth Alliance League.

Smith played a starring role as he created all three goals in the win, which saw the young Cod Army register their second victory of the league campaign.

Two goals from the returning Louis Myers, alongside a timely header from captain Michael Muscat, gave Craig Madden's side the three points in a Fylde Coast derby.

And following a fine individual performance, Liverpool born Smith stated his delight to the Club website:

"It feels great to win today, and as a group we've been through a lot in the last six or seven weeks or so, so to get the win was a great feeling for all of us."

The second year scholar, who will be hoping to gain a professional contract with Fleetwood at the end of the season, also revealed that he has been doing extra training over the last few weeks.

“I've been kept behind and doing extra training work, as my set-pieces weren't up to my own personal standards.

“The gaffer (Craig Madden) and the rest of the coaching staff have helped me over the line in the last few days by pushing me to succeed.”

Smith also stated his pride at playing such a key role in the win over Morecambe, and has been an important member of the Town squad so far this season.

"I'm so happy to play a major part in such a win, but personally I feel that all the lads deserve credit after a tough run.

“Let’s just hope this is the start of something and we can possibly kick on in the game on Wednesday in the FA Youth Cup at home to Accrington Stanley.”
