Report: Millwall Under-18s 2-1 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s slipped to 2-1 loss at Millwall on Saturday.

Despite scoring first, City were hit with a late goal in each half as they succumbed to defeat in South London.

Trialist Tom Harrison, previously on the books of Bristol Rovers’ youth setup, headed the opener after eight minutes from Harry Smith’s corner.

But the young Lions levelled two minutes before half-time with a screamer from 25 yards.

Ricardo Rees came within a whisker of restoring City’s advantage with a planted header that flashed wide of the far post.

The winner arrived in the final ten minutes from a set-play, as the Under-18s were condemned to a second straight 2-1 loss.

Coach Trevor Challis said: “We rested a number of players with Tuesday’s FA Youth Cup tie (versus Birmingham City) in mind.

“The lads who came in did really well, especially the Under-16s, and we were unfortunate not to come away with something from the game.”

City Under-18s: Begovic, Turner-Williams, Webb, Hall, Harrison, Spark, Rees, Harry Smith (Ali), V.Harper, Conway (Bell), S.Pearson (Day).
