Norwich City Under-18s


Rhys Murphy hit his fifth successive brace as Arsenal Under-18s stretched their unbeaten start to the season to eight games with a 3-1 win over Norwich at Shenley.

Murphy struck his first on 15 minutes but Steve Bould's youngsters went in level at half time. Portuguese striker Rui Fonte continued his own notable goalscoring form to put the Gunners ahead on 78 minutes before Murphy maintained his incredible record with just two minutes remaining.

The victory leaves Arsenal in third place in the Academy league with 22 points from eight games.
