U18 Report | Manchester City 1-1 Albion

Divine Onyemachi in training

Albion's U18 side secured a hard-fought point at Manchester City in the U18 Premier League Cup on Saturday. 

The hosts tried to assert their authority from the off and took the game to Albion, edging ahead through Alfie Harrison seven minutes before the interval.

City had a chance to make it 2-0 from the penalty spot in the second 45, but Baggies stopper Louis Brady saved Harrison's effort.

Albion were brave after that incident and managed to draw level when substitute Divine Onyemachi headed home an Archie Kirton cross from the right.

As you'd expect, Man City pushed forward in the hope of finding a winner, but Leigh Downing's boys stood firm and took a credible point back down the M6.

ALBION: Brady, Kirton, Morrish, Sumnall, Nelson (Sears), Mfuamba, Deeming (Mandey), Whitwell (Chimeziri), Walker, Sule (Kone), Bostock (Onyemachi).
