Waterlogged pitch puts premature end to Spurs clash

ALBION’S Barclays U18 Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur was abandoned after 58 minutes on Saturday, due to a waterlogged pitch.

After a goalless first period, the visitors took the lead through a close-range effort from Ismail Azzaoui on 58 minutes.

But no sooner had Spurs taken the lead, the referee, Mr. Denne, brought the game to a premature end deeming the surface to be unplayable after persistent rainfall.

Albion: Palmer, Ezewele, McCourt, Gannon, Fitzwater, Barbir, Leko, Smith, Wright, Ward, Miller.
Subs: Viakla, Sweeney, Elbouzedi, Cater, Gregory.
