Campbell hits hat-trick as Albion U18 rout Villa

26th August

Baggies hit Villa for six

TAHVON Campbell bagged a hat-trick as Albion registered a resounding 6-0 triumph away at local rivals Aston Villa in the Barclays Under-18 Premier League at the weekend.

The Baggies raced into a two-nil lead before half-time thanks to a well-worked goal from Chay Scrivens and a second from Andre Wright.

And, after an own goal put Albion three goals to the good, it was a superb second-half showing from Campbell which grabbed the headlines as his treble wrapped up a very professional and solid display.
 
It was a well-deserved victory from what was Albion’s second U18 Premier League match of the campaign, going down 3-1 against West Ham in their season-opener. 
 
Scrivens was again on target, netting a consolation against a visiting Hammers side whose counter-attacking play proved effective.
 
ALBION v Villa: Ross, Ezewele, Hallahan, Gannon, Cleet, Donnelan, Scrivens (Edwards), S Nabi, Wright, Ward (Smith), Campbell.
