Arsenal Under-18s


Merida (2), Gibbs

Ipswich Town Under-18s


A Fran Merida brace set Arsenal on their way to an eighth
successive home win but it took a late strike from Kieran Gibbs to
secure all three points against Ipswich Town.

Spaniard Merida netted on 25 and 44 minutes - his first academy
goals since hitting three in his first three games - as Arsenal
went in 2-1 ahead at the break. The points were not made safe,
however, until Gibbs notched his third goal of the campaign with a
minute to go.

The victory means Steve Bould's youngsters are still
unbeaten this season and sit top of the Academy League.
