Analysis

Kelsey Mooney netted a brace as Villa U18s came from two goals down to see off Fulham in dramatic style at Motspur Park.

The Londoners raced into an early lead on 24 minutes courtesy of Jón Dagur Thorsteinsson’s brace.

Mitch Clark started the fight back late on in the first half with a well taken finish and with the team pressing hard for an equaliser most of the second period, Mooney provided a good finish from Jack Clarke’s cross.

The claret and blues showed fight, character and continued to push and sealed their first away victory of the 2016/17 season in the last minute of stoppage time through a well worked goal by Mooney.
