U18 Premier League | Albion 0-1 Southampton

Albion U18 player Archie Oliver

Albion’s U18 side were narrowly beaten by Southampton at home on Saturday.

The tight contest was heading for a goalless draw but the club’s youngsters had Deago Nelson dismissed for two bookable offences late on, a moment which helped swing momentum in Saints’ favour.

And the visitors managed to grab a winner 11 minutes from time when the ball went in off Baggies substitute Femi Olofinjana. 

ALBION: Hudd; Nelson, Sumnall, Mohammed, Williams; Oliver, Deeming; Kirton (Olofinjana), Heard, Walker (Oluwatobi); Love (Kone).

Substitutes: Cisse, Hurlock.
