Arsenal Under-18s


Frimpong 5, Bartley 60

Ipswich Under-18s



Arsenal's academy slipped to a second straight defeat on Saturday, losing 3-2 at home to Ipswich. It's the second time this season that the Suffolk side have taken three points from the Gunners.

With one eye on Tuesday's Youth Cup tie, Steve Bould fielded a much-changed side with the notable inclusion of Luke Freeman. The youngster, signed from Gillingham, was making his debut.

England schoolboy Emmanuel Frimpong got the hosts off to a flying start, registering inside five minutes. However by the break the scores were level.

Summer acquisition Kyle Bartley netted his first for the Club on the hour mark, but it wasn't enough to deny the visitors all three points.
