Academy Report

FA Premier Academy League


Saturday, January 13, 2007

West Ham Under-18s


Arsenal Under-18s


Lansbury 18, Rodgers 77

Arsenal Under-18s stretched their unbeaten start to the season to 17 games after a hard-fought London derby with West Ham United at Little Heath Sports Ground.

Rhys Murphy and Jay Simpson are usually among the goals in the Academy League but on this occasion two young Gunners opened their accounts for the season.

Henri Lansbury, on the bench for the Carling Cup victory at Liverpool last Tuesday, scored after 18 minutes and Paul Rodgers grabbed his first goal of the campaign with 13 minutes left to secure a point for Steve Bould's boys.

After another undefeated weekend in the Academy League all eyes turn to the FA Youth Cup and Arsenal's Fourth-Round tie at Hull City on Wednesday night.
