A much-changed Arsenal Under-18s suffered a 3-0 defeat in the mini North London derby at London Colney on Saturday.

Youngsters Craig Eastmond, Jay Thomas, Jack Wilshere and Cedric Evina all made rare starts for Steve Bould's side, with regulars Fran Merida, Nacer Barazite, and Paul Rodgers dropping to the bench. Defender Gavin Hoyte, midfielder Mark Randall and strikers Rui Fonte and Jay Simpson were rested completely following a hectic recent schedule in the Academy League, Reserve League and FA Youth Cup.

The young Gunners conceded all three goals in the first half as they suffered only their second league defeat of the campaign.
