Charlton Athletic Under-18s
England schoolboy Emmanuel Frimpong kept Arsenal Academy's
hopes of a play-off berth alive with the winner against
In an opening period littered with chances the travelling
Addicks were thankful to head in level at the break.
Arsenal continued to press after the break but, with Charlton
always improving, the match was finely poised.
A touch of class was needed to settle matters and it duly
arrived 15 minutes from the end. Jack Wilshere danced past a couple
of opponents and showed presence of mind to pick out the onrushing
Frimpong. The 16-year-old made no mistake as he sent a rasping
drive beyond the goalkeeper to sew up all three points.
