England Beat Scots to Reclaim Victory Shield

Kenny Swain has had a very successful time in charge of England Under 16s

England have won the Victory Shield for the eleventh successive time with a 100% record thanks to a Jordan Brown brace.

The Arsenal youngster opened the scoring early and extended England’s tally before half-time to cap a great night for Kenny Swain’s boys.

A slip by Ryan Fulton in the Scotland goal allowed Brown to score his first after only 7 minutes.

Brown’s fellow Arsenal teamate Alex Iwobi doubled England’s lead after 14 minutes after his deflected shot looped over the stranded Scotland ‘keeper.

Scotland tried to get back into the game and were rewarded when Paul McMullan’s powerful drive beat Angus Gunn in the England goal.

However, England extended their lead just after the half-hour mark when Brown claimed his second of the match to put England 3-1 in front.

Victory was almost secure for England just after the break when Derby County’s Mason Bennett fired them 4-1 up.

Scotland replied after they were awarded a penalty when McMullan was fouled inside the area. This allowed Craig Storie to fire home for the Scots but it would never prove to be anymore than a consolation.

Further chances for both sides faded into nothing as England held on to reclaim the shield and celebrate a 100% record.

Bryn Morris, who was captaining England for the first time, lifted the trophy in front of an impressive 1,454 at Inverness.
