Report: Watford U18s 0-2 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s made it two wins on the spin as they secured a 2-0 victory away at Watford.

Vince Harper, an Under-16, did all the damage early in the game and the Hornets were unable to recover the situation. 

Left-winger Harper pounced early on to convert from close range after Ricardo Rees’ shot had only been parried out by the home goalkeeper. 

Harper was at it again soon after, running on to James Morton’s through pass and dispatching his shot under the advancing Watford stopper. 

Coach Trevor Challis said: “We went 2-0 up very early on and then managed the game really well. 

“At times it wasn’t pretty in the second half but it’s important we learn how to see out games. I’m delighted with how we played.” 

He added: “Vince has been doing really well for our Under-16s. He’s an exciting left-winger and took advantage of being promoted to the Under-18s with two good goals.” 

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