U18s Host Swansea

Friday 10 August 2018 13:30

The Under-18s host Swansea City on Saturday morning in their first fixture of the 2018/19 Premier League South. The Young Whites kick off at 1pm at Motspur Park.

Last year Fulham faced the Swans three times, drawing away from home and losing at Motspur Park in the league, however, beat them convincingly in difficult conditions in the FA Youth Cup last 16 round.

In the final match of the Young Whites' pre-season, they dispatched Nottingham Forest 8-0 after putting out their strongest team possible. 

"We were comfortable winners against Nottingham Forest", commented Head of Academy Coaching Steve Wigley. "So they are in a good place mentally and physically.

“Friday and Saturday all three Club teams play at home, it would be nice if the First Team can get off to a winning start, which is the priority.”
