Dan Barrow (WBA - midfielder) Was on the scoresheet and the winning team as the Baggies U18's beat Walsall in a mini-derby and advance to the next round of The FA Youth Cup. Barrow cruised into a central position and coolly dinked the ball over the keeper and into the Saddlers goal.
Jake Charles (Huddersfield - striker) Scored his 12th of the season as the U18's beat Luton Town 3-1 after extra time in the FA Youth Cup. Charles gave Town the lead ten minutes from time when he expertly slotted home through the legs of the keeper.
Jake Eyre (Sheffield Utd - striker) & Ioan Evans (Sheffield Utd - defender) Will further their careers with loan moves to Stocksbridge Park Steels and Buxton FC respectively.
Jordan Evans (Fulham - midfielder) & George Williams (Fulham - striker) Both shone again as the U18's beat QPR away in the FA Youth Cup this week. Evans and Williams ran riot in the 4-1 win.
Morgan Fox (Charlton/Notts County - defender) Played 90 minutes as he started life at Notts County with a 3-1 win against Gillingham. Fox will benefit from senior game time as he looks to prove to Charlton manager Chris Powell that he has what it takes to play a part for the Addicks.

Curtis Watkins (Cardiff City - defender) And his fellow defenders kept a clean sheet as the City U18's beat Blackburn 1-0. Callum Harris (Blackburn - midfielder) started for the Rovers.
