Tranmere Rovers Youth 0 Blackpool Youth 1: ROVERS went out of the Lancashire FA Youth Cup at the first hurdle in spite of putting up a strong performance at Raby Vale.
Rovers created a couple of clear cut chances with the wind at their backs in the first half and were unable to capitalise.
They went behind after 60 minutes. Garnett said: “The application the boys showed was spot on. I do think we were the better team in spite of the result.”
Tranmere were without Liam Davies, who has been on first team duty and goalkeeper Sam Ramsbottom, who picked up an injury in training.
Rovers travel to Walsall for a Youth Alliance fixture today.
