Arsenal Under-18s made an impressive start to the
new season with a 3-1 win over London rivals Chelsea at
Shenley on Saturday.

 

Lee Sawyer had given the visitors the lead on four
minutes but Dutchman Nacer Barazite, who scored for the first team
against Barnet in pre-season, restored parity 20
minutes in.

The sides went in level at the break but it took
midfielder Mark Randall just three minutes to put the young
Gunners in front.

Randall, who travelled to Austria for the first team's
pre-season training camp last month, doubled his tally on the
hour-mark to wrap up all three points.

Steve Bould's side, who went 19 games unbeaten at the
beginning of the 2006/07 campaign, will travel to Charlton
Athletic on Saturday.
