U18 REPORT | Charlton 5 Swansea City 0


Charlton’s U18s began the new year in fine fashion with a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Swansea City at Sparrows Lane on Saturday.

Patrick Casey, Ryan Huke, Kai Enslin and Henry Rylah were all on target for the young Addicks, along with a Swansea own goal.

Casey opened the scoring on 25 minutes, converting Rylah’s cross with an incredible, instinctive flick.

Huke doubled Charlton’s advantage on the half-hour mark, controlling Rylah’s centre superbly before rifling a left-footed effort into the bottom corner.

There was still time for the young Addicks to increase their lead with a pair of late goals, the first of which came courtesy of a Swansea man.

Moments later, Rylah added a goal to his two assists, racing onto Enslin’s flick and coolly finishing past the Swans stopper.

The U18s are back in action on Saturday, January 14th, when they travel to Queens Park Rangers (KO 11am).
