Blitzing Second Half Stuns Swans

Saturday 19 October 2019 22:42

Main Action:

A blitzing second half performance from the Under-18s, which included a Jay Stansfield treble, meant Steve Wigley’s side scored five for consecutive games to down Swansea at the Landore Training Centre. 

Fulham were sloppy by their high standards in the first half, but it was Stansfield with the first sighting. Sylvester Jasper lofted a ball in behind for the forward to send a half-volley flashing across goal.

A disjointed first period suited the Swans who faced a swaggering Fulham side brimming with confidence and the hosts had their best spell heading towards the interval. Ali Al-Hamadi drove down the left to drive in a ball that was dealt with smartly by Connor McAvoy.

Jasper’s elusive movement was causing problems as he arrived late from the corner of the box to send a stinging shot towards Lewis Webb who beat the ball behind. The Swans took the lead five minutes after the warning sign as Luca Ashby-Hammond got down to a Bradley Gibbings strike, but Charlie Clancy pounced to convert the loose ball.

A combination of Ashby-Hammond and Luca Murphy kept the scores level from an almost certain goalscoring opportunity for Clancy.

Parity was restored with a rapid trademark counter into the second half. Jasper’s burst down the left was pulled back for Stansfield who slammed home a first-time finish. The goal ignited the Under-18s that we’ve become accustomed to seeing. A sweeping move freed Stansfield to whip across a pass that Jean-Pierre Tiehi toed into the roof of the net.

The free-scoring side that has been so clinical smelt blood and went for the Swans’ neck. Fabio Carvalho bared down on goal after clever movement and was tugged to the floor to present Stansfield with the perfect chance to double his tally which was never in doubt.

A productive outlet was Jasper to Stansfield, and that combination proved fruitful again 15 minutes from time. Stansfield strutted onto a pass to turn his man and slot home to make it seven goals in two games and successive hat-tricks.

Terry Ablade’s raw pace came into the game as Carvalho sent a ball in behind. The forward cut inside to fire a classy finish into the corner to make it successive 5-1 wins in the league.

What That Means:

Brighton dropped points against West Ham moving them to third, however Chelsea’s win over Norwich means our South West London rivals sit level on points with the lads at the top of the table. 

Notable Talking Points:

  • Only seven goals conceded this season is a joint tightest in the Under-18 Premier League alongside Manchester City.
  • Stansfield’s hat-trick moves him onto 13 goals for the season which is unrivalled by any other player.
  • Seven wins from eight games plus a draw is a record not even matched by the side that reached the FA Youth Cup final in 2014.
