Connor Randall scored twice as Liverpool U21s beat Nike Academy 5-3 in a friendly encounter in Kirkby on Monday afternoon.

Also on the mark for Michael Beale's side were Jordan Williams, Daniel Trickett-Smith and Will Marsh.

The Nike Football Academy is an English association football academy run by Nike and is made up of unsigned U20 players to help them find a club.

It was a good excercise for the young Reds, who also had the likes of Williams, Brad Smith and Ryan McLaughlin in action.

The U21s are back in league action on Saturday when they face Manchester City at the City Academy on Platt Lane, at 11.30am GMT.

Liverpool U21s team: Fulton, McLaughlin, Smith, Cleary, Maguire, Williams, Randall, Chirivella, Marsh, Trickett-Smith, Madger Gomes.
