Arsenal Under-18s


Ogogo 20, Barazite 40, Gibbs 65, Fonte 75

Charlton Athletic Under-18s



A gritty second-half performance from Arsenal secured a 4-3 win against Charlton on Saturday. It was a positive return to Academy League action for an Arsenal side which was side-tracked by a Youth Cup tie which was postponed at short notice last week. 

A first goal of the season for Abu Ogogo got the Gunners off to a good start. But despite Nacer Barazite notching a second five minutes before the interval, the sides went in all square.

Kieran Gibbs and Rui Fonte restored Arsenal's advantage in the second half, although the Addicks did find the back of James Shea's net before the final whistle.
