Khayon Edwards scored a superb hat-trick as we beat Norwich on the road to move up to second place in the Under-18 Premier League South.

The hosts were looking for their first point of the season, but Dan Micciche’s side started confidently with Marcelo Flores bending a shot just over the bar.

But we didn't have long to wait for our opener as, with seven minutes on the clock, we swept forward and James Sweet provided a low cross for Edwards to convert at the near post.

Our in-form striker doubled his tally not long afterwards, racing on to a superb through ball by Flores, before taking it around the keeper and slotting home.

Edwards came close to a first-half hat-trick when he was played into space in the left channel and raced in on goal, but his low shot was saved.

Amario Cozier-Duberry was next to try his luck with a left-footed effort that went just wide, and we continued to dominate after half-time.

Flores and Sweet combined nicely up the right, with the former getting into the are and blasting a shot over the bar.

Edwards wrapped up his hat-trick with a little over 15 minutes to go, touching home from close range after good work by Mauro Bandeira to complete a fine afternoon's work.

Match report: Arsenal U-18s 2-2 Burnley

We were held to a 2-2 draw by Burnley in an entertaining game in our second group-stage match in the U-18 Premier League Cup on Saturday.

We made a bright start at London Colney, and came close to the opener when Charlie Sagoe Jr - who scored a dramatic late winner in our opening clash in the competition - combined well with Marcelo Flores, whose firm shot was saved.

The in-from Khayon Edwards soon came close with a stinging drive from the edge of the area that was saved well by Charlie Casper, with the Burnley keeper also blocked Sagoe Jr’s follow-up effort.

We made the breakthrough seven minutes before the interval when James Sweet was tripped in the area, and Flores made no mistake from the resulting penalty.

But we were pegged back at the start of the second half when Flores was closed down on the edge of the box, and Will Hugill slotted home for the Clarets.

Flores soon tested Casper again after a twisting, turning run into the Burnley box but the goalkeeper was equal to it.

But we didn’t have long to wait to retake the lead when Sagoe Jr found space in the box and fired a dangerous ball across goal, only for Dan Sassi to turn it into his own goal.

Just as it looked like we would secure our second win on the bounce in the competition, Burnley burst forward and Tremaine Eastmond supplied a neat finish to a sweeping ball into the area to equalise.
