Southampton U18s 2 Sunderland U18s 1: Gooch strike’s not enough for young Black Cats

Have your say

SUNDERLAND Under-18s are still searching for a first win of the Barclays U18 Premier League season after going down to an unfortunate defeat at Southampton today.

An own goal by full-back Ryan Ellison gave Saints the lead, but Lynden Gooch smashed home an equaliser after good work from Dan Pybus.

Southampton’s Ryan Seager grabbed the winner after Sunderland – who played well throughout – gave the ball away in midfield.
