Fulham Under-18s’ league campaign began with a 3-2 defeat at local rivals Chelsea.

Fulham Under-18s’ league campaign began with a 3-2 defeat at local rivals Chelsea.

The hosts started the stronger at Cobham and went ahead though Harvey St Clair’s free-kick, with the forward then setting up Martell Taylor-Crossdale to double to lead.

But the Whites reduced the deficit before half-time in some style as Jayden Harris curled a fine effort into the top corner.

Steve Wigley’s boys came out for the second period in positive fashion as they chased an equaliser, but Chelsea extended their lead through St Clair’s second goal of the day.

Another brilliant Harris finish ensured a nervy finale for the hosts, but unfortunately the fixture ended in defeat for the young Whites.
