Arsenal Under-18s


Fonte 63, Cruise 68, Barazite 75, Wilshere 90

Aston Villa Under-18s


Arsenal Under-18s strolled to a comfortable 4-1 win over Aston Villa at Shenley on Saturday afternoon.

The young Gunners took over an hour to get on the scoresheet but after Rui Fonte slotted home on 63 minutes the floodgates opened.

Tom Cruise scored five minutes later and substitute Nacer Barazite made the game safe 15 minutes from the end. The rout was completed in stoppage time when Jack Wilshere scored his first of the season.

Steve Bould's side remain unbeaten so far this term. They will resume their campaign on September 15 away at Watford.
