A Bolton outfit celebrated a five-star win for the second time this weekend.
The Trotter’s under 18 side beat Manchester City, top of the northern section of the Barclays U18 Premier League, by the three-goal margin on Saturday morning whilst their under 21 side piled the same misery on Tottenham Hotspur earlier today.
Souleymane Coulibaly and Shaquille Coulthirst gave Spurs a 2-0 lead before half-time but Bolton came out rejuvenated after the break.
Tom Youngs beat Jordan Archer from the spot after Dominic Ball was sent off for a rash challenge in the box – a moment that would prove decisive in the structure of the game.
Bolton’s equaliser came when Chris Lester scrapped home the ball at the back post.
Georg Iliev came off the bench for the final ten minutes and proved the difference between the two sides.
The striker netted a hat-trick within five minutes to seal the win for Bolton.
His first came when he scrambled home after Lester capitalized on a Spurs defensive error and his second was taken well with a neat touch and a low finish. The treble came when he got on the end of Robert Hall’s cross.
