A late fightback could not stop Arsenal Under-18s losing 3-2 to Norwich City at the Training Ground on Saturday morning.

The Norfolk side struck twice at the end of the first period. Elton Monteiro put through his own net five minutes from half-time and Josh Murphy scored from the spot on the whistle.

Jamar Loza struck three minutes after the re-start to leave Arsenal trailing 3-0. Jeffrey Monakana put Steve Bould’s side back in the game then Jon Toral closed the deficit still further in the 63rd minute.

However Arsenal could not find the equaliser and slipped to their third defeat in Premier Academy League Group A this season.
