Roarie Deacon and Luke Freeman struck a brace apiece as the Under-18s secured their first victory of the campaign on Saturday morning.

Leeds' Mike Whitwell opened the scoring on the quarter-hour but Deacon swooped in the 28th and 40th minute to hand the hosts the advantage.

Freeman extended the lead five minutes after the restart but Tom Elliot halved the arrears in the 67th minute.

But Freeman's second, seven minutes from time, put the result beyond doubt.
