Report: Cardiff City U18s 3-2 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s completed the year with a narrow 3-2 defeat in the Severnside derby at Cardiff City.

Trevor Challis’ side twice led at the Leckwith Stadium, only to succumb to a wonder goal from James Waite in the second half. 

City scored inside two minutes as Marcus Day pounced inside the box after the Bluebirds failed to deal with a set-piece. 

The hosts drew level just four minutes later as Ibraim So Sani’s teasing shot along the six-yard box was palmed out by James Carey, only for Isaac Davies to nudge in the rebound. 

However, straight from the kick-off City stormed forward and Cameron Allen fired the ball low into the far corner to restore his team’s advantage. 

Parity was restored once more just before the break as Mark Harris stabbed Jarrad Welch’s curling cross beyond Carey. 

The winning goal was fired home early in the second half by Waite, hammered into the top corner on the angle for a stunning winner. 

Coach Challis said: “After the FA Youth Cup game on Tuesday, we opted to rest a few of the players and featured a number of Under-16s, as well as Jamie Taylor from our Under-15s. 

"Jamie has featured for Wales in the Victory Shield and didn’t look fazed by the step up. 

“Obviously it was disappointing to lose 3-2, but I thought it was a very positive display from our young team.” 

City Under-18s: Carey, Richards, Spark, Morton, Barry, Parsons, Williams, S.Smith (Taylor), Day, Allen, Harper (Ali).
