Report: Bristol City U18s 1-3 Charlton Athletic U18s

City Under-18s were beaten 3-1 by an impressive Charlton Athletic – with Tammy Abraham’s brother Timmy on the scoresheet again.

Abraham’s younger sibling scored in a 4-0 win against City earlier in the season and he was on target again, albeit in a much closer contest this time around. 

City scored first after 15 minutes at SGS College as George Nurse let fly from 25 yards and found the bottom corner. 

Charlton drew level ten minutes after half-time, but it didn’t change City’s mentality, as they burst forward and saw Harrison Reeves crash a shot against the bar. 

The Addicks made it 2-1 just after the hour mark and as the hosts pushed for a late equaliser, Abraham sealed all three points with a neat finish. 

Coach Trevor Challis said: “We’ve played the top two teams in the league in the past two weeks and have performed really well. 

“They were powerful and athletic but we stood up to them and gave them a really good game. We can certainly take positives from our recent performances.” 

City Under-18s: Begovic, Turner (Ali), Harvey Smith, Parsons, Nurse, Edwards, Z.Smith (Allen), Reeves, Rees, Taylor (Richards), Akpobire.
