Six games undefeated to start the season with five of those being wins. Bolton Wanderers U-18s keep on winning as they maintain their place at the top of the U18 Premier League National Group 1 table. The young Trotters now have a two point lead on Reading with a game in hand and five points over Arsenal. David Lee's (and Tony Kelly's, even though he's been sidelined with heart issues recently with a good diagnosis following a second operation) side continued their blistering form, picking up another win at home last weekend.

Luke Woodland opened the scoring for Bolton early on, finishing from midway inside Everton's penalty area after a neat bit of interplay in the box. Everton then scored twice through Gethrin Jones and Chris Long, putting them up a goal. Long beat the onrushing Bolton goalkeeper, Jan-Ole Sievers to give the visiting Blues a 2-1 lead. Bolton equalized on the stroke of halftime with Rob Holding providing the goal after a loose ball from a corner fell to him fifteen yards out.

Bolton would pull away in the second half with Everton conceding a penalty. Luke Woodland again caused trouble for the young Whites and was brought down by Curtis Langton. Zach Clough scored his sixth league goal in as many games from the spot. Bolton then stuck the dagger in through Tom Youngs, who also added his sixth goal after Zach Clough put in a pass that left Youngs with only the goalkeeper to beat.
