Becchio helps fight off Leeds’ travel sickness; Fulham 18s beat Chelsea

Oldham 1 – Leeds 1 (League One, March 2, 2009) John Sheridan’s team wore an all-pink strip for the night as part of a drive to raise £250,000 for the Royal Oldham Hospital. The Latics broke through six minutes after the break when Lee Hughes seized on a loose ball and somehow volleyed past goalkeeper Casper Ankergren from an acute angle. Luciano Becchio equalised with a header off the crossbar.


Fulham 3 – Chelsea 0 (FA Premier Academy U18 League, February 27, 2009) The Cottagers earned the braggig rights in West London thanks to a Danny Hoesen opener with further goals from Karim Laribi and Alex Smith.
