Arsenal Under-18s suffered a 4-2 home defeat to Reading on Saturday morning.

Having gone behind to a third-minute Jake Taylor penalty, Nico Yennaris equalised for the Gunners with a spectacular 25-yard effort in the seventh minute.

Frank Raymond then restored the visitors lead before Zak Ansah drew Arsenal level shortly after half-time.

However, with 16 minutes to go Charlie Rossaro out Reading ahead before Jordan Obeta made it 4-2 with 77 minutes on the clock.
