Joel Ideho, Omari Hutchison star as Arsenal U18 win at Reading

Arsenal whiz Joel Ideho continues to impress for the club's U18 team.

The summer signing from Ajax was again on the scoresheet in Arsenal's 4-3 win at Reading yesterday.

The Royals were 2-0 ahead before exciting midfield talent Omari Hutchinson scored the first of his brace on the day.

Ideho then stepped up to score his second of the season.

The 17-year-old was picked out in space over on the left flank and stormed into the penalty area, before cutting on to his favoured right foot and curling into the bottom corner.

Reading, however, still went into halftime 3-2 ahead thanks to a late goal in the first-half.

Henry Jeffcott fired a stunning half-volley into the top corner for his first goal at this level.

Hutchinson had been lively all afternoon and late on produced another of his trademark runs, skipping past his marker and racing into the box before inviting a foul from Jay Senga.

Hutchinson stepped up and made no mistake in converting from the penalty spot, sealing three valuable points for Ken Gillard's side.
