Villa U18s through to end-of-season play-offs


Villa are through to the end-of-season play-offs in the Barclays U18 Premier League after a stunning 6-1 win at Norwich.

Tony McAndrew's team went in to the clash against this season's FA Youth Cup finalists knowing a win would clinch top spot in qualification tier two.

And the young lions secured first place in style by continuing their red-hot goalscoring form.

Jerell Sellars - who scored a hat-trick in Saturday's win over Man City - bagged another treble against the Canaries.

Australian utility man Jordan Lyden scored twice, while Riccardo Calder also got on the scoresheet. Villa will now face qualification group tier winners Sunderland in a play-off for a place in the Barclays U18 Premier League semi-finals.

The match will take place on Sunday at the Black Cats' Academy of Light training ground, with an 11am kick-off.

VILLA: Watkins, Webb, Bateman, Lewis, Wildin, Abdo (O'Brien 60), Lyden, Cowans, Calder, Grealish (Green 70), Sellars (Hepburn-Murphy 60).
