27 August 2016

Baggies claim first win of the season

ALBION’s Under-18 side recorded a 2-1 victory over Derby County on Saturday morning – their first league win of the campaign.

Marcus Forss grabbed the winner in the dying stages as the youngsters extended their unbeaten start to the campaign following 1-1 draws with Manchester City and Newcastle United.

Taylor Morrison’s hard work down the wing resulted in the opening goal shortly before half-time when his cross was turned into the net by a Derby defender.

The Rams equalised late on but Finland youth international forward Marcus Forss applied a confident finish with just five minutes remaining to secure three points for the Baggies.

ALBION: House, Meredith, Artymatas, Piggott, Melbourne, Bradley (Holsgrove 88), Dool, Wilding, Morrison, Forss, Pierce.

Unused subs: Keranovic, Walker, Solanke, Tulloch.
