Newell On Target In Win

12 March 2014

Joe Newell was on the score-sheet as the Development team beat Luton Town 2-0.

The Peterborough United Development Team were 2-0 winners over Luton Town at the Nene Park Academy on Wednesday morning.

Midfielder Joe Newell opened the scoring with a calm left-footed finish and youngster Jonathan Edwards sealed the win with a late strike from 18-yards.

The first half was fairly uneventful with only an Edwards shot that was saved and a deflected Jack Friend effort causing any concern for the Luton Town back-line.

Posh played at a far greater tempo in the second half and created a number of opportunities with Edwards, Friend and Newell all going close before the latter produced a fine finish following a good pass from Craig Alcock.

Goalkeeper Joe Day produced a couple of fine saves to keep Posh ahead before Edwards wrapped up the win.

Former Posh goalkeeper Mark Tyler, now with Luton, was there to watch the fixture.

Posh: Day, Santos, Alcock, Grant, Ntlhe, Payne, Newell (sub Conlon), Anderson, Trialist, Friend (sub Coulson), Edwards.
