Ethan Nwaneri scored twice as Arsenal U18s rallied from behind to defeat Aston Villa 2-1 at home today.
Jack Wilshere fielded a young team, with no second years in the roster. Camron Ismail, a schoolboy, began at left back, with Nwaneri up front.
Brian Okonkwo got a rare start in goal, and Harrison Dudziak began in midfield.
Four schoolboys were named to the bench, including Reece Clairmont, who was called up for the first time at this level.
