U18 Premier League: Arsenal 4-4 Albion

Akeel Higgins

A last-gasp Arsenal equaliser prevented Albion's U18s claiming an important three points in the capital on Saturday afternoon. 

Goals from Osman Kamara, Sebastien Ferdinand and Kaleel Green looked to have dented the young Baggies' momentum following Fenton Heard's first-half strike.

But Leigh Downing's side rallied, with Layton Love bagging a brace either side of Akeel Higgins' effort in the space of ten second-half minutes to seemingly set the visitors on course for a hard-fought three points.

Unfortunately, Myles Lewis-Skelly's 93rd-minute leveller meant Albion's young stars returned to the Black Country with just a point.

Albion: Cisse; Williams (Nelson 65), Phillips, Olofinjana, Humphries; Oliver, Mfuamba (Turlock 65), M.Richards (Oluwatobi 80), Higgins, Heard; Love.

Substitutes: Kirton.
