Academy: Royals 4-3 Everton

An Uche Ikpeazu hat-trick capped a fantastic comeback for the Royals Academy to beat Everton 4-3 at Hogwood Park.

They had to do it the hard way - but Jack Stacey's goal and a trio from Ikpeazu - now up to 22 goals for the season - completed the turnaround and secured their second Elite League win in a row.

Our 18s face Fulham at home next Saturday - and will be looking to avenge the 3-1 defeat the Cottagers inflicted on them just two weeks ago.

This follows the news of Jake Cooper, Aaron Tshibola and Tariqe Fosu-Henry's call-ups to the England under 18s squad. Niall Keown is also involved in the Three Lions' ranks - with the defender on stand-by for the side, which take on Belgium on March 5th.

Well done to all our Academy boys!
