Report: Ipswich Town U18 1-5 Bristol City U18

Antoine Semenyo bagged a hat-trick for City Under-18s as they thrashed their Ipswich Town counterparts 5-1 in Suffolk.

Ahead of the first team’s win over the Tractor Boys at Portman Road, Trevor Challis’ youngsters recorded a second straight thumping win.

Fresh from beating Hull City 7-2 in their last outing, the Under-18s were at it again, with recent signing from SGS College, Semenyo, opening the scoring after just six minutes.

Cameron Allen threaded a pass through, which Ricardo Rees cleverly stepped over to allow Semenyo to run clear and lift over the advancing keeper.

At half-time it was only 1-0 and remained a close contest; that soon changed.

Semenyo grabbed his second soon after half-time, this time running on to a pass from Marcus Day and rounding the keeper to score.

Allen made it 3-0 with a venomous first time shot into the bottom corner and the rout continued when Kieran Smith’s deflected shot found the net.

Semenyo completed his hat-trick with six minutes to play, drilling home from 12 yards after great build-up play involving Chris Turner-Williams, Allen and Rees.

There was still time for Ipswich to register a late goal, but it was only ever going to be a consolation effort.

“The boys have really bought into the way of playing that we want and that’s now 12 goals in two games,” said coach Challis. “We’re obviously delighted with the result and the team deserve a lot of credit.”

City Under-18s: Sainsbury; Ali, Burford, Spark (Turner), Turner-Williams; Rees, Z.Smith, Hall (Harry Smith), Day (K.Smith); Semenyo, Allen. Subs not used: Carey.
