Top 4 Performers from the U18 Premier League Cup (South)

Matchday 2 of the U18 Premier League Cup delivered entertaining matches throughout the country. Here are four players from the southern conference who stood out:

 

Ralfi Hand – Charlton Athletic 

Ralfi Hand, scored a brace as the young Addicks remain top of Group F of the Premier League Cup with an emphatic 8 – 1 victory against Liverpool. The midfielder scored in the 27th and 38th minute. In the first goal, he raced onto a loose ball and found the bottom-right corner. His second goal was a sensational finish from outside the box. The 17-year-old showed amazing technique as his effort went into the top corner. In spite of the fact, he lasted 63 minutes on the pitch, he was part of the winning team that demolished their opponents.

 

Junior Dixon – Crystal Palace U18

Crystal Palace’s main number ‘9’ continued his rich vein of form as he got on the scoresheet from the penalty spot. As Rob Quinn’s side took a giant step towards qualifying for the quarter-finals of the competition with a 2 – 1 win against Sheffield United. I predicted in my preview that Dixon would be a key player to watch for this Palace side.The penalty he scored in the 30th minute was his 8th goal in all competitions. He comfortably sent the keeper the wrong way, and he powered his spot kick to the right-hand side of the goal.

Joseph Gibbard – Crystal Palace 

Playing on the right-hand side of a midfield three Joseph Gibbard, worked his socks off for his team Saturday afternoon. He won 3 duels and created two crossing opportunities, one of his crosses fell to match-winner Asher Agbinone. The new summer signing has made seven appearances in all competitions and has scored two goals in the process. He has been one of Crystal Palace’s important players this season.

 

Harry Mills – Brighton Hove Albion 

Left wing-back Harry Mills, scored a brace as his side dismantled Leeds United 4 – 0 to revive their league cup campaign. Mills took his goalscoring tally to three goals in all competitions. His first goal in the 24th minute was tucked away from a cross received by Harry Lee. Then just over the hour mark, he had his brace as his side forced their opponents into a mistake on the edge of their own box, finishing off with a well-taken strike just outside the box. He lasted the whole duration of the match.
