City Elite Development Squad’s dreams of a domestic treble hit a bump in the road after a narrow 4-3 defeat at Arsenal.
Two goals in three first-half minutes from the hosts gave City a mountain to climb after the break but Adam Drury halved the arrears a minute into the second period.
An incredible point-blank save from Arsenal keeper Matthew Macey prevented Devante Cole from equalising after 56 minutes, before Stefan O’Connor scored a decisive third goal to restore the two-goal advantage, 20 minutes from time.
