Fenton Heard - Albion U18s midfielder

Albion Under-18s suffered a heavy home defeat against Brighton on Saturday afternoon. 

Zak Emmerson and Ruairi McConville netted first-half efforts to give the Seagulls breathing space at the break, and they picked up where they left off at the start of the second 45.

Leigh Kavanagh made it 3-0 just three minutes after the restart and although lively creative midfielder Fenton Heard pulled a goal back for Peter Gilbert's side, it would only prove to be a consolation. 

As Benjamin Jackson and Jack Hinshelwood took the score to 5-1 in the closing stages, capping off a day to forget for the Baggies' U18s side. 

Albion: Cisse; Williams, Phillips, Mohammed (Olofinjana 46), Shaw; Whitwell, Oliver, Hurlock (Mfuamba 46); Higgins, Okoka (Heard 29), Oluwatobi.

Substitutes: Hollingshead.
