Colley scores to hand Atalanta Primavera title

Atalanta’s incredible 2018/19 campaign ended with silverware as their Primavera side struck late through Gambian youngster Ebrima Colley to beat Inter Milan and win the Primavera TIM Scudetto in Parma.

The club’s senior team, which achieved UEFA Champions League qualification for the first time in their history last month, watched as their youth team followed that up with a 1-0 win against Inter in Friday’s Primavera Final.

Finishing the regular season top and 11 points clear of second-placed Inter, Atalanta came into the game as favourites and while they spent most of the game asserting their control over their opposition who stood strong and showed signs of causing their own problems.

But they found the breakthrough in the 84th minute through Scorpions international, Colley, who fired past the Inter keeper to secure a second a third Primavera title for the Bergamo-based club.

The goal was also Colley’s eleventh of the season in twenty-five appearances.
