Reading U18s 3-0 West Brom U18sAn early strike from Harry Cardwell set Reading’s U18s en route to victory over West Bromwich Albion, with Noor Husin and Jake Sheppard adding to the scoreline in the second half.
Cardwell struck after just 14 minutes as the U18s looked to make it four wins in five matches and, following a handball just before the hour mark, Sheppard converted from the penalty spot to double the advantage.
Five minutes from time, central midfielder Husin concluded a swift counter attack to make it 3-0 to the dominant hosts.
