Charlton Athletic Under-18s


Arsenal Under-18s


Emmanuel-Thomas 50, Fonte 80

Arsenal Under-18s dropped their first points of the season as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Defender Jay Emmanuel-Thomas notched Arsenal's first on 50 minutes to open his scoring account for the campaign. Portuguese striker Rui Fonte then got his first of the season to ensure a point with 10 minutes remaining.

Steve Bould's side were without Fran Merida, Henri Lansbury, Rhys Murphy and Gavin Hoyte, all of whom are starring at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Korea.

Having beaten Chelsea 3-1 in their opening fixture, the Under-18s remain unbeaten this season. Their next match is against Aston Villa, at Shenley, on Saturday.
