Fleetwood Town's Under-18s narrowly lost out to Bolton Wanderers 1-0 in the Youth Alliance Cup match at Poolfoot Farm.
The match - which was played on Saturday 3 September at Fleetwood's training complex - didn't see many chances throughout the 90 minutes, however the one big chance fell to the visitors, who scored the only goal of the tie in the 71st minute.

The Under-18s now have a week on the training pitch ahead of next Saturday's Youth Alliance League match against Wanderers.
