Heavy defeat for Under-18s at home to Sunderland

Max Melbourne with consolation strike late on

ALBION’s Under-18 side suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat at home to Sunderland in their penultimate Barclays U18 Premier League game of the season on Saturday morning.

After leading 1-0 at the break, Sunderland added a second goal at the start of the second-half before scoring twice more towards the end.

Left-wing back Max Melbourne pulled a goal back in the closing stages but it proved to be little more than a consolation on what was a disappointing day for the youngsters.

ALBION: House, Wilson, Piggott, O’Shea, Barbir, Melbourne, Dool (Meredith 60), R.Nabi, Elbouzedi, Forss, Pierce.

Unused subs: Hall, Wilding, Morrison, Harper.
