Arsenal Under-18s lost their first game of the season when they went down 3-2 at Reading on Saturday.

The hosts took the lead in the early stages but goals by Roarie Deacon and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas appeared to have turned the game in favour of Steve Bould's side.

However two late strikes from Kelvin Bossman ensured the Royals took all three points.
