Last Saturday saw us beaten 2-0 by Sunderland in the U18 Premier League, a result that has seen us drop one place to third in the table behind Liverpool and new leaders Blackburn Rovers.

Our near neighbours played twice last week, won them both and are now three points clear at the top although Liverpool have a game in hand having won two out of two this season.

It’s difficult to determine just how things are going to go this season but we are ahead of four other teams on four points and we have just one point more than Manchester United who are next to bottom.

While Blackburn and Liverpool have 100% records, Manchester City remain the other unbeaten team in the north while Everton, sat at the bottom, are now the only team without a win with Manchester United, Middlesbrough and Sunderland all winning for the first time.

In the south league, it’s fair to say four teams have started well and four not so well. We went into last weekend’s fixtures with Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Fulham and Southampton having won their first two games. We can now make that three out of three for all of them. Similarly, at the bottom, Reading, West Brom, Spurs and Norwich all lost again to leave all of them searching for a first point of the season.

Poor Norwich, their under-18 team seems to be defending like their first team. They’ve conceded no fewer than 15 goals while only scoring one.

With this being the international break there will be no fixtures this weekend but it’s back underway on Saturday, 11th September when we take on Leeds at home.

The player featured this week is right-back Keelan Williams who is now a second year scholar.
