Report: Ipswich Town U18s 3-1 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s failed to recover from a nightmare first half as Ipswich Town ran out 3-1 winners in Suffolk.

The youngsters found themselves three goals down at the break, on the back of a string of individual errors. 

However, the second half proved an altogether better 45-minute period. 

Owen Barry scored from the penalty spot ten minutes from time after Harrison Reeves had been chopped down. 

Under-18 assistant Neil Swift said: “We let Ipswich in far too easily and there were a few home truths spoken at half-time. 

“We played a lot better in the second half and had we started the game like that, who knows what would have happened. We certainly had a much more positive impact on the game and had further chances to score after Owain’s penalty.” 

City Under-18s: Robertson, Turner-Williams, Parsons, Harvey Smith, Ali (Harper), Richards (Barry), Reeves, Rees, Nurse (Allen), Akpobire, Edwards.
