Arsenal U18s concluded their season yesterday with a 2-1 victory away to Chelsea.
Midfielders Miguel Azeez and Jack Henry-Francis were on the scoresheet, with Arsenal moving up to fourth place, although Tottenham, who still have a game remaining, could knock the young Gunners down to fifth.
It was Azeez’s final appearance at U18 level, although in truth he has been beyond this stage for some time having predominantly featured for the U23s during the past 18 months.
Azeez will hope that he will be able to receive further first-team involvement soon, having already made his senior debut in the Europa League.
The goal that Azeez scored against Chelsea was of a very high standard as he managed to skip past several players before finishing well.
Henry-Francis, meanwhile, still has some way to go to get close to the senior squad, but he too has developed well this season.
The 17-year-old possesses an excellent passing range, but there are occasions when he can get caught out defensively.
This season Henry-Francis has mostly played for the U18s but he has also broken into the U23 squad and he should receive more chances at that level next season.
