Latics’ under-18s won for the fourth consecutive match as they beat Carlisle United 4-1 on Saturday afternoon.
Goals from Mwiya Malumo, Joe Downey, Jensen Weir and Victor Maffeo sealed the win for Latics.
It took just 12 minutes for Latics to go ahead when Maffeo intercepted and played the ball into the box for Malumo, who got in front of his defender and shifted onto his right foot before finishing.
The second didn’t come until midway through the second-half when Tylor Golden’s left-sided throw-in found Malumo, who cut back in the box for Downey to finish when arriving late.
Seven minutes later, the three points were wrapped up when Maffeo drove forward into the box, beat his man and squared the ball to Malumo, who passed laterally again to substitute Weir to finish top corner with one of his first touches.
Maffeo got the fourth from the penalty spot late on.
Latics: Perrin, Plant, Golden (B. Roberts 85), Long, Hilton, McGuffie (Monaghan 81), Maffeo, Downey, Malumo, Jolley (Culshaw 68), Baningme (Weir 74).
