The quarter-finals of the U18 Premier League Cup took place over the weekend with a few surprise results. The eight remaining teams faced off and we now know the four semi-finalists that will compete for the trophy. After this weekend’s results it is guaranteed that a new name will be on the trophy this year. In this article, we will take you through all the results from the quarter-finals.

Sheffield United 3-0 Fulham

Second-tier Sheffield United overcame U18 Premier League South side Fulham with a convincing home victory. Goals from Jayden Prunty and Kurtis Havenhand came either side of an own goal from Delano McCoy-Splatt to give the Blades the win. The U18 Professional Development League North side produced a stunning display to brush aside the Cottagers and reach the semis.

Southampton 0-4 Aston Villa

Aston Villa ran out convincing winners in this all-U18 Premier League South clash. Goals from Ewan Simpson, Charlie Lutz, Rory Wilson and Omari Kellyman continued Villa’s sensational cup form. The game was more even than the scoreline suggests with Southampton putting up a good fight. However, the Villians’ clinicality in front of goal saw them into the hat for the semi-finals.

Manchester City 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur earned a hard-fought victory away at Manchester City to reach the U18 Premier League Cup semis. Jahmai Simpson-Pusey was sent off after 30 minutes for a second bookable offence giving Spurs 60 minutes with a man advantage. The only goal came in first half stoppage time when Jamie Donley headed home from a corner to send 10-man City out.

West Bromwich Albion 2-4 Charlton Athletic

U18 Professional Development League South side Charlton Athletic ran out victorious in this six-goal thriller. Ryan Huke put the Addicks ahead early on before Layton Love equalised with his fourth goal of the competition. Toby Bower scored a penalty to restore the lead before the Baggies equalised again through Adriel Walker just before the break. Charlton grabbed two goals in eight second-half minutes from Patrick Casey and Joshua Laqueretabua to send them through and ensure there are two second-tier sides in the semi-finals draw.
