Barclays U18 Premier League: Fulham Put Pressure On Spurs At Top Of The Table

Fulham U18s won the league last season.

Fulham U18s won the league last season.

Fulham kept the pressure up on Spurs at the top of the southern group yesterday as they stormed to a 5-0 win over Wolves. Spurs meanwhile won 2-1 away from home against Newcastle to remain top of the table.

Fulham endured a quiet start but burst into life when Emerson Hyndman netted on 32 minutes.

George Williams doubled the lead with a neat curled effort before half-time and Stephen Humphries did well to lose his marker and make it 3-0 after the break.

In the last ten minutes Dean O’Halloran made it four and Humphries grabbed his second to complete the win.

Shayon Harrison netted twice as Spurs remained top of the table with a win over the Magpies.

Jonathyn Quinn hit one back for Newcastle to bring the scores level after Harrison scored from 12 yards.

Harrison’s second came seven minutes from time as his one-on-one effort was saved but he managed to convert the rebound.

In the northern group, Everton are still in a strong position five points behind leaders Manchester United but have two games in hand on the Red Devils.

They could have been in an even more enviable position if it wasn’t for yesterday’s loss at home to Reading, which saw a stunning comeback from the visitors after they 2-0 behind at half-time.

Tyrone Duffus scored Everton’s first before Callum Connolly scored his third goal in three games to double the lead.

Jack Stacey gave Reading something to cheer about as he scored twice to bring the scores back level and five minutes from time Rob Dickie put the Royals into the lead.

Reading’s win pushes them up to fourth in the southern table.

Full results:

Middlesbrough 0-0 West Ham, Newcastle 1-2 Spurs, Stoke 0-2 Chelsea, Wolves 0-5 Fulham. Sunderland 1-1 Aston Villa, Blackburn 3-3 Leicester, Bolton 0-2 Norwich, Everton 2-3 Reading, Liverpool 3-3 Southampton, Man City 2-0 Arsenal.
