BRADFORD City's Under-19s finished their season with a flourish, showing why they are the title winners by thumping their Doncaster Rovers counterparts 5-0 at Valley Parade last night.

Cole Roberts netted twice for the young Bantams in their final EFL Youth Alliance North East Division game of the season, while Bobby Pointon, Dylan Youmbi and Charlie Wood also got their names on the scoresheet for Martin Drury's side.

City flew out of the traps and opened the scoring after 10 minutes. Jack Wilson took advantage of a mistake before sliding the ball to Louie Chorlton.

His cross from the wing was crashed home by Roberts for 1-0, and the Bantams doubled their advantage moments later, when Pointon took down a long ball, embarked on a fine run, before putting his effort beyond the Doncaster keeper and into the bottom corner.

Youmbi netted a superb solo goal after 24 minutes to make it 3-0, opening up space for himself on the edge of the box before slotting a strike into the bottom corner.

Wood went closest to making it 4-0 just before the break, as he came inches away from perfectly rounding off a neat team move.

But the young Bantams did score again after 57 minutes, with Roberts turning in the rebound after Youmbi's initial shot was saved.

Doncaster somehow survived a goalmouth scramble moments later, before Roberts was denied a hat-trick by a fine save from the visiting keeper.

Roberts then inadvertently hit a shot into Wood's path, who tapped home for City's fifth and final goal.

After the game, Drury said: "I wouldn't say it was one of our best performances of the season, I think the players would admit that themselves.

"I felt at times we were able to find our rhythm and there were some really good moments, but we were a little inconsistent and untidy in certain situations.

"Some of these players have been in the academy for years and years though, so it's a really big thing for them, psychologically, to be here at Valley Parade.

"On the whole, I was pleased with their bravery and competitiveness and I thought they thought they worked tirelessly, showing the humble nature we ask for.

"They were a credit to themselves so I'm really pleased for them."
