Report: Colchester United U18s 3-1 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s slipped to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Colchester United on Saturday.

All four goals came in the first half of this Essex encounter, with Trevor Challis’ side quickly finding themselves 2-0 down.

Sam Bell reduced the deficit after good work from Marcus Day, but another goal just before the interval left the young Robins with an impossible mountain to climb.

“We played some good stuff in the middle of the park but we were poor in both boxes,” admitted coach Challis.

City Under-18s: Carey, Ali, Spark, Burford, Webb, K.Smith, Harry Smith (Towler), Z.Smith, V.Harper, Bell (Maguire), Day.
