REPORT | AFC Blackpool 1-1 Wrexham (4-3 on Penalties)

Wrexham exit the FA Youth Cup

30 September 2021

Wrexham crashed out of the FA Youth Cup as AFC Blackpool put in a heroic display to advance on penalties.

Tom Jenkins’ first half goal was cancelled out by Alex McLoughlin before the hosts went through via the shoot-out to record an upset.

Though Wrexham came into the game as favourites it was AFC Blackpool who started the better of the two sides as the Mechanics dominated possession in the early exchanges.

Jack Tingle had the first chance of the game as he picked up the ball in midfield but dragged his shot wide. Moments later Wrexham skipper Tom Jenkins picked up an early yellow for dissent. 

Wrexham’s first real chance came on 19 minutes as Will Mountfield placed a superb cross to Kai Evans who has his effort from close range saved well. 

The deadlock was broken on the half hour mark, Jenkins found himself on the ball 30-yards out in space and smashed the ball into the bottom right corner to give Wrexham the lead - albeit against the run of play.

Evans had a chance to make it 2-0 with five minutes of the first half to play, but his dancing feet to beat those in orange were in vain as the goalkeeper put a stop to his efforts.

Half-Time: AFC Blackpool 0-1 Wrexham

Blackpool began the second half in full force, peppering the Wrexham goal and making life difficult for the Wrexham backline. Eventually the pressure paid off as Alex McLoughlin’s effort from range took a deflection to deceive Louis Parr in the Dragons goal and level things up on 54 minutes.

After 66 minutes Evans was fouled off the ball for a Wrexham free-kick 35-yards out but were wasteful in possession. Moments later Evans feeds in Harry Bell who is stifled and his shot doesn't test the goalkeeper.

With seven minutes left Parr was called upon to make a brilliant save one-one-one from close range as Wrexham hung on for dear life.

The final whistle went and after misses from Towse and Jones, Blackpool went through deserved winners.
