Under-18s overcome the Tigers

Bristol City Under-18s defeated Hull City Under-18s 1-0 in what was a close encounter at SGS on Saturday.

City had the first chance of the game through Tommy Conway. The forward’s driven shot beat the Hull keeper but was denied by the woodwork. The Tigers then put City under a spell of pressure with back-to-back corners hitting the crossbar, as the Robins failed to clear the danger.

However, it was the hosts who broke the deadlock in the 20th minute. Sam Pearson took the Hull midfield out of the game as he turned and played the ball into Sam Bell. The youngster beat the Hull keeper from a tight angle, allowing Conway to tap the ball into the net.

City combined well to create a few more notable chances in the first half but despite their best efforts, they were unable to add to their advantage.

The second half was a close affair with both sides limiting the other team to few chances.

The closest either side came to scoring was in the opening five minutes when Sam Bell hit the Tigers crossbar from a curling free kick.

City managed the second half to secure all three points at home in the Under-18s Professional Development League.

Starting XI: Aaron Sainsbury, Mark Thuo, Khari Allen, Jago Lott, Joseph Low (C), Callum Pearson, William Gould, Jamie Taylor, Tommy Conway, Samuel Bell, Samuel Pearson. Subs: Joshua Owers, Luca Smith, Cameron Salmon, Prince Henry, Jemar South Thomas
