Jack Dunn fired a hat-trick and Harry Wilson scored twice as Liverpool U23s won 6-0 away at Bangor City in a friendly encounter on Wednesday night.

Toni Gomes was also on the mark as the young Reds played their first game of 2017, while Sheyi Ojo enjoyed a 45-minute outing as he continues to sharpen his fitness.

The Reds opened the scoring on 14 minutes when Wilson netted after a pass from Paulo Alves, and Gomes made it 2-0 after being set up by Matty Virtue.

Dunn then came off the bench to make it 3-0 and Wilson got his second when he followed up to score after his initial penalty was saved.

Dunn, who had a loan spell with Morecambe at the start of the 2016-17 season, then completed his hat-trick with two fine efforts.

Reflecting on the victory, U23s coach Mike Garrity told Liverpoolfc.com: "We were really pleased with all of the lads tonight and it was an excellent performance.

"I was delighted for Jack to get his hat-trick and that will give him a lot of confidence.

"Sheyi did well in his 45-minute outing and is getting sharper with each game he plays.

"Overall, we were pleased with the lads' attitude and their work ethic was fantastic."

Liverpool U23s: Kelleher, Whelan, Maguire, N Phillips (Brewitt 45), trialist, Williams, Wilson, Virtue, T Gomes (Dunn 60), Alves (Brimmer 75), Ojo (M Gomes 45).
