Bolton Wanderers Under-18s draw at Arsenal
12:00am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Sport
Wanderers Under-18s ended their losing streak with an impressive 1-1 draw away at Arsenal on Saturday.
After starting the FA U18 Premier League with five straight defeats, it was a point and a display that delighted coach David Lee, particularly after they recovered from conceding an early goal on seven minutes by Jamal Raage to level before half time through Guillermo Torres.
Lee said: “We pressed high up the pitch, stopping Arsenal from playing their passing game. We did concede after eight minutes, but we responded well and totally dominated the game after that.
“It was a creditable performance against an Arsenal academy set-up that is highly thought of.”
The U18s are back on home turf on Saturday when they host Middlesbrough at Lostock, kick off 12.30pm.
