Albion's Under-18s suffered a late defeat against Tottenham Hotspur in the capital on Saturday afternoon. 

Harry Whitwell had given the Baggies an early lead, netting after 17 minutes as Peter Gilbert's men fought to hold onto their slender advantage.

Unfortunately, eight second-half minutes completely changed the complexion of the game in the hosts' favour. 

Firstly, George Abbott found a leveller with just over 20 minutes remaining before substitute Riley Owen netted a second with just over 10 minutes to play.

And the Spurs midfielder's goal proved to be decisive, as Albion fell to their first defeat in three matches.

Albion: Hollingshead; Williams, Hall (Phillips 46), Olofinjana, Nelson (Hurlock 82); Whitwell, Mfuamba, Wangusi; Higgins, Cleary, Love.

Substitutes: Cisse, Oluwatobi.
