Tranmere Rovers Youth 2 Wrexham Youth 0
TRANMERE notched a fourth win in five Youth Alliance North West games by scoring twice in the second half at Ingleborough Road.
Goals by Joe Newton on the hour and Lewis Moynes eight minutes from time moved Rovers up to fifth place in the table.
Academy director Shaun Garnett said: "It was a typically tight and competitive game against Wrexham but I thought we just edged it in the second half and deserved the victory.
“The performance was solid and encouraging. The players seem to have bought into the way we want them to develop.
“We are not conceding many goals and while we could do with scoring a few more at the other end, we are in a much better position than 12 months ago, when we were at the bottom of the table at the end of December.”
Tranmere have a break from Youth Alliance action until January 11, when they travel to Port Vale.
