Under 18's

Thumping victory for U18s

ALBION's under-18 side produced an imperious display to beat Liverpool 4-1 at Palm Training Ground on Saturday.

Eoin Ashton, Jamie Soule (2) and Rayhaan Tulloch were on target for the young Baggies, who added Steven Gerrard's side to their growing list of conquered giants in the U18 PL campaign.

Manchester City, Newcastle and Liverpool have now been beaten by four goals to one, with league-leaders Manchester United dispatched 4-2 back in August.

With Jamie Smith set for Premier League 2 duty on Monday evening, Peter Gilbert took charge of Albion who had the lead early on through a sumptuous Ashton strike (14).

And he saw his side two ahead at the interval, Soule notching his fourth of the season (36).

Liverpool hit back from a set piece in the shape of Fidel O'Rourke (55), before Soule struck his second (70) to regain the two-goal cushion.

And just 90 seconds later the points were secured as Tulloch, who signed his first professional contract last month, slotted home the fourth (72).
