Report: Bristol City U18 7-2 Hull City U18s

City Under-18s put seven goals past their Hull City counterparts in a scintillating display at SGS on Saturday.

Trevor Challis' young side blitzed their visitors, racing into a three-goal lead, before continuing where they left off after half-time by scoring four more.

The opener came from Cameron Allen’s free kick, which struck the post and rebounded over the line off the back of the goalkeeper.

Antoine Semenyo, a recent trialist who has now signed for the club, made it 2-0 by converting from a corner.

Then defender Jack Spark tucked in Marcus Day’s cross to continue City’s strong start to the game.

Hull replied on the stroke of half-time from a stunning free kick, but City restored their three-goal advantage when Day finished off a well-worked passing move early in the second half.

Another 30-yard free kick made it 4-2, but the hosts were blown away after that.

Allen scored a brilliant curler from distance for City’s fifth and then Ricardo Rees danced his way past a number of defenders to score.

Semenyo completed the scoring near the end, chasing on to Allen’s pass and slotting past the keeper.

“We put a lot of effort into producing a way to play against Hull and the boys, to their credit, took that on board and displayed it in the game,” coach Challis said.

“It’s a big well done to the lads, as well as our new head of coaching David Horseman and Neil Swift, my assistant, because that was a great display.”

City Under-18s: Roberson, Ali, Burford, Spark, Towler, Day (Mortimore), Hall (Taylor) Z.Smith, Rees, Semenyo, Allen.
