U18 Premier League: Top performers from 11th March 2023

Only six fixtures took place in the U18 Premier League this weekend, two in the north and four in the south. This weekend consisted of rearranged matches from earlier in the season and saw Manchester City and West Ham United both extend their leads at the top of their respective tables. Here are the three standout stars from this reduced week of academy football.

Asher Agbinone, Crystal Palace

Asher Agbinone netted a brace in Crystal Palace’s 4-3 victory over Arsenal. The winger equalised for Palace early in the game before adding his second ten minutes later to put the Eagles in front. Agbinone’s haul takes him up to six goals in the U18 Premier League in what is his breakthrough season at U18 level. His goals helped Palace secure another crucial three points which saw them climb back above Fulham into second in the table.

Remiero Moulton, Brighton & Hove Albion

Remiero Moulton scored twice as Brighton and Hove Albion came from behind to beat Chelsea 3-2. The 16-year-old equalised for the Seagulls early in the second half before netting the winner for Brighton in the 72nd minute to cap off a thrilling game of football. Moulton is enjoying his debut season at U18 level and now has four goals to his name this campaign. He also made his debut at U21 level this season, coming off the bench in the Premier League International Cup.

Nico O’Reilly, Manchester City

Nico O’Reilly grabbed a goal and an assist off the bench in Manchester City’s 4-0 win against Everton. The 17-year-old entered the pitch at half time with the game goalless. O’Reilly set up fellow substitute Charlie Gray for City’s second before notching the third goal himself as the Citizens went 10 points clear at the top. The midfielder has now moved up to joint top of the U18 Premier League assist charts, level with City teammate Matthew Whittingham on 11. He also has 11 goals in all competitions this season.
