Arsenal Under-18s



Reading Under-18s


Arsenal Under-18s' preparations for the FA Youth Cup Semi-Final second leg against Manchester United suffered a blow as they went down 2-1 to Reading at London Colney on Saturday.

The Gunners have now lost twice in succession and have no more games before the trip to Old Trafford on April 2.

Striker Jay Simpson scored his 16th goal of the season on the stroke of half time but the sides went in level at 1-1.

Steve Bould brought on James Dunne, Sanchez Watt and Paul Rodgers after the break but it was the visitors who scored again to ensure all three points.
