Albion U18s suffered a heavy defeat on home soil against an in-form Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors raced into a 3-0 lead before the break after goals from Jon Rowe, Joe Duffy and Brad Hills put them in a commanding position.

Hills doubled his tally for the contest just two minutes after the interval and it didn’t take long for Oscar Thorn to net City’s fifth and round off a disappointing day for Peter Gilbert's side.

Saturday’s defeat brought Albion’s four-game unbeaten run to an end, but their good form prior still meant they'd acquired eight points from a possible 15 and moved out of the U18 Premier League's bottom-two.


Albion: Hollingshead; Williams (Machisa 61), Lamb, N’Goma (Hoard 33), Shaw; Kabaya, Richards (Love 81), Oliver, Sousa; Okoka; Cleary.

Substitutes: Barrett
