ALBION’s under-18s lost 3-1 at home to Derby County in the U18 Premier League North.
The young Baggies were behind inside a minute when Adam Davie scored for the away side from a tight angle.
Davie then got his second of the game midway through the first half when he was put through on goal and finished into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
Jamie Soule pulled one back after the break for Albion when he headed Aksum White’s cross into the back of the net.
But Morgan Whittaker put the game beyond the Baggies not long after when his half volley beat Adam Przybek.
