Clayton-Phillips’ brace helps Under-18 side to Saints draw

Youngsters in entertaining draw

NICK Clayton-Phillips scored both goals for Albion’s Under-18 side as they drew 2-2 with Southampton on Saturday.

The visitors raced into an early lead, but the Baggies battled back and pulled level shortly after the half-hour mark when the attacker bundled home from inside the six-yard box.

Clayton-Phillips then put Albion 2-1 up with a thumping header at the back post just five minutes later.

The youngsters looked to be heading for all three points but Southampton struck late on to steal a share of the spoils.

ALBION: House, Meredith, Artymatas, Piggott, McCourt, Wilding, Chambers, Dool, Soleman, Clayton-Phillips, Tulloch (Morrison 70).

Unused subs: Biddle, Healy, Holsgrove, Hall.
