Baggies youngsters defeat Manchester City
JONATHAN Leko’s 17th minute strike secured a super 1-0 victory for Albion’s Under-18 side over Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.
The England Under-17 forward raced through on goal after receiving a precise pass from Tyler Roberts, before sliding the ball beyond the reach of the onrushing ‘keeper.
The Baggies had chances in the second-half to make the scoreline more comfortable, but the youngsters must also be commended for keeping out the visitors with some solid defending.
